Been looking for new construction homes in Greenville/Greer SC area for about 4 weeks.

Been looking for new construction homes in Greeville/Greer SC are for about 4 weeks.  Homes are comparable and neighborhoods similar.  Price per sq ft has wide variance, $90-$110 per sq ft.  How do we find out what the price/sq ft is for this area?  Is there a way?

I strongly recommend the use of a buyer's agent also.  They can provide all of the information that you need and can also negotiate a better deal for you.  Good luck on your home purchase!

I would highly recommend you working with a buyers agent.  You do not pay the buyers agent the seller will pay your agent.  The Realtor you pick should be someone you feel comforitable with.  This person will not only help you find your new home, but will be sure you are negotiated the best possible deal, get all the paperwork handelded correctly, and be with you through closing and beyond.  Choice wisely.

Houses are not sold on a square foot basis, but instead as a unit.   The square foot calculation falls out of the total sales price.  

What affects price per square foot?  

- size: larger homes have lower cost per square foot from the moment of start of construction assuming everything else is equal

- finish:  higher end finishes add to construction cost.   Is the flooring builder's grade carpet (less expensive) or hardwood (more expensive).   Is the roof 10 year shoddy shingles or 400 year slate?   There are hundreds of other finish possibilities that add or subtract from costs.

- is the home in a desireable location vs unwanted location in the subdivision?  

- does the home have a view or not?  

If prices are $90 to $110 per square foot, you've got the answer.  That's the range, narrowing it down further depends on the individual house you are examining.
