The cost to build a new home can vary dramatically, depending on your requirements and expectations. Are marble countertops a priority or does solid cherry flooring reign supreme? Determining what you want and what you need is the starting point when estimating the cost of your new home. At Herr & Company, our experience tells us that the clients who have the best experience building their new home are those that have done research and determined the list of products and features they feel are necessary to their new home build.
