That's a great question. The average price for all new construction currently listed is $84.68 sq ft and sold price is $79.41 per sq ft during the past year. The prices actually range from a low of $66.77 to a high of $120.91.
If you're talking about a custom built home, you could expect to be on the higher end of that spectrum and maybe more depending on the features you requested in the home.

I have connections with several loan officers that I would be glad to have make contact with you. I suggest you talk to them about whether refinancing is the right option for you.
My caution to you would be to look at your current debt to income ratio, decide whether you can handle both loans at the same and if you'll be able to justify the closing costs on the house for the refinance and the actual closing. That would result in making the cost of your home even higher than it already is. You could possibly end up with a house that's difficult to sell if you're trying to recoup all of those costs.
You might want to get a market analysis or appraisal done on your current home to see if you want to invest additional closing costs into the equation.
Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you with name of loan officers or information about the current value of your home.... more
I'll add that the "low" appraisal was low because appraiser used court ordered sales as comps. A second appraisal (paid for by seller) was done and came in above contract price. Buyer wants to knock almost $6,000 off contract price because of low appraisal. However, since the buyer already had the low appraisal before she submitted the work list to the seller, doesn't that somehow commit the buyer to the contract price?... more
You probably cannot; but it doesn't matter:
You cannot just transfer the Title to your name, you would have to take the LOAN too.
And you couldn't take the Loan, because he is Upside/Down, and the Appraisal would prevent that from happening.
You would have to qualify for a NEW loan, and someone would have to pay the Bank for the difference.
Homeowners have been trying to short-cut this situation for 3-4 years now:
Beware if someone tells you that they know how.
Your friend has basically 4 choices:
Keep the house, (somehow) and wait till it comes back up,
Shortsale the house
Let it Foreclose,
Do a Deed-in-Lieu
Good luck and may God bless to you both... more
This is definitely a question for your realtor as every situation is unique, however usually if you have an offer on a property, and it's in pre foreclosure, it doesn't necessarily mean you've lost out. It depends on where the sellers lender is, in the foreclosure process. You may have better luck speeding the process along with a professional negotiator, which is usually paid by the sellers lender at closing. Ask your realtor about this option. Good luck, I hope you get the house!... more

It is very unlikely a bank will sell directly to an individual. I've never heard of a bank selling without listing through their designated Listing agent. Use a REALTOR to represent you and they can assist in navigating through this process. It is VERY likely this proeprty is already assigned to a local agent and they are determining what price to place it on the market.
Also, if the property is already foreclosed by the 1st, then the 2nd has been wiped out and stands in the same position as everyone else wanting to buy the property - they get no advantage.
Best of luck,
