Re: House construction -cost per square foot
Having an interest in the Ins Industry, wife being an agent, they have really changed their outlook on the value's that they are placing on residences. They have gone from taking the square footage and coming up with a values to days situation. Today they want to know how it is finished inside, type of countertops,cabinets, tub surrounds, flooring, windows, and etc etc etc. It wasn't that long ago you could get a kitchen for $8,000. Today is is quite common to spend that on a counter top This has come about due to the high cost of replacing todays home and they discovered their system was not adaptable to todays housing market. They also have the added cost of clean up and removal of anything that has to be torn down. This has occured over the last 3 years.
