Return Value on Custom HomeI own a piece of property in Shoreacres, Tx on the water and my wife and I are wanting to build a house on it. The issue is the research I have been doing shows builing a 3000 sq.ft. house is about 300000 give or take. The problem is there are close to that houses selling for much less. Typically are you always going to take a huge hit on resell price building a new home rather than buying one already built.October 23 2012 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
