Is Price per Square Foot a good criterion for buying a home?
Many people compare one builder to another by dividing the sales price by the estimated square footage of the house. We feel this would be like buying your next new car by the cost per pound. You may find that rather silly, but isn’t that what most buyers do when comparing the value of homes to each other? If the lowest price per square foot is your sole criterion for determining which home to purchase, you may not decide to purchase a new Masullo Brothers Builders home. Although we are very competitive with other builders on a cost per square foot basis, the quality of a new home and its neighborhood must be judged by the old adage Location, Location, Location as well as the home site size, included features, design, materials and quality of construction that is provided relative to the price per square foot. That is where we are set apart from our competition and where you should analyze the value to cost ratio. If you are still thinking of shopping on only cost per square foot basis, compare home site size and then verify the dimension as quoted from outside wall to wall or inside wall to wall. This simple calculation can mean as much as 35-55 square foot difference per some floor plans. And we all know a larger home site cost more because in most cases it offers the value of less density.
As you approach a Masullo Brothers Builders home you will first notice the neighborhood in which it is located. We provide a planned community designed to enhance value with compatible architectural home styles, sizes and prices. No matter what your investment may be, shouldn’t your neighborhood rate a distinctive location? Over 75 acres of Twenty West was dedicated to the Town of Guilderland as open green space. A professionally designed streetscape, open green space and well designed home sets a tone for your guest when they visit you in your new Masullo built home. Shouldn’t you get a quality neighborhood along with your new quality home?
