How much it would cost to build a new simple kitchen?

There is a foreclosure house that we're planning to buy. The house looks good except for the kitchen. The former owner took everything out of the kitchen... appliances, sink and cabinets. It basically looks like an empty room. How much it would cost to build a simple kitchen? The kitchen size is 11x9 if that helps. If this property is approved for home path renovation financing, is building a new kitchen part of the renovation financing?

The cost depends on what you consider to be "simple".  Minimum will probably be $10,000 to do a decent job.

Take that information to Home Depot and ask them for a quote.

Places like HD give you a cost/sf price for cabinets based on the quality of the cabinets so give them the length of the kitchen where they are located. Labor is extra and they can give you an idea, but a basic kitchen can cost 10K, but more depending on your definition of simple.

A new kitchen should be able to be included in renovation financing, but you can check with your lender. If you want a cheap kitchen, you can go with IKEA. They are prepackaged and it is easy to control costs with them.

If you want something more complex or more durable over the long haul, I would sit down with the software available at Home Depot as soon as they open in the morning. You can get the elements priced out roughly high, middle and low for everything from cabinets to counters.
