Curious what’s the estimated price per sq ft to build a house in Jersey, specifically Ocean County. Higher end construction but no over the top ****.

 

i was hoping for something like $200 sq ft but I’m guessing it’s higher

I came up with $111.00 per square foot.

The foundation can range a little less than

$100,000 and that includes clearing the lot.

Compared to NYC this is very affordable. ;)

Site work and let’s go for the gusto, no foundation, raised on pilings.

 

my house will be paid off in about two years, trying to decide if I could afford to build something on the water, but smallish for the water considering most of those giant monstrousities

I figure between  $120.00 to $160.00 sq. ft., waterfront, for this county, wasy. Yup it does swing that much from south to north. What town, and what body of water ( creek, river, lagoon, bay) make differences. I didn't even figure oceanfront, of course lol.

Modular vs. stick built is something you should look into as well. Though I am no fan of modulars.

That figure there should get you a nice house.

One I recently worked on in RI., with the required new near shore raised concrete foundation system and approved septic system came in around  285.00 a square foot, not super high end, but nicely done and with geo thermal and generator
