New Construction Home in Homestead

New construction project in Homestead of a 3 bedroom/2 bath residence

Rausa BuildersCorp. was contracted to build this new construction home in Homestead, Florida. The project began with an empty 10,000 sq. ft. corner lot which needed to prepped for building. Preparations included bringing in fill to elevate the structure and connecting temporary power utilities for use through the duration of the construction process.

The home was built using CBS (concrete block structure) construction, poured tie-beams with embedded rebar and a solid concrete foundation. We then installed the impact windows & doors from Lawson Industries. 3-tab asphalt shingles were installed on the hip roof and the formed concrete driveway consists of four 100 sq. ft. concrete slabs with interlaying grass.

Once finalized, this new construction home was just over 1,300 sq ft with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, dining room & family room. Rectified porcelain tile with a wood look was installed on the floors throughout. The center-piece of the home is the brand new kitchen, with solid wood cabinets and a granite countertop. It is no wonder why this property was receiving offers from potential buyers before it was even completed.

The construction of a new 3 bedroom/2 bath home like the one seen above starts at $170k. The location (city or municipality) of the project can increase this cost due to specific city requirements. For example, some cities might not allow shingle roofs, requiring the more expensive tile roof option.

Some other factors that can affect cost are lot clearing, pre-existing utility services and quality of materials. Below is a breakdown of how these factors can increase or decrease costs.
