According to HomeAdvisor, it can cost $150,000 to $450,000 to build your own home. Of course, this price estimate varies by region, materials and square footage. A custom home is also different than a production build, where developers have various lots and floor plans to choose from in planned subdivisions.

A professional real estate agent can help you decide whether you want to buy or build a new home in North Carolina, and if you opt for the latter, a Landmark agent can help you decide whether you want a custom home or a production build. We know the area and we can help you choose the best custom home builder, find the right lot, help you choose which part of town you want to be in, and the perfect mountain community for you and your family.

Rules and restrictions vary by state, city and county. This is another reason why it’s best to work with a professional. They can help navigate the home building process and make it easier, so you can focus on your upcoming move.
