To help you decide whether you are ready to begin new home construction, we have shared our expert knowledge in answering questions that many homeowners ask prior to undertaking custom homes:

How much do custom built homes cost?

The cost of custom homes is expressed in “price per square foot” variables. For instance, a 1,500 square foot home at the rate of $300 per square foot would result in a total of $450,000. This sum includes items such as building permits and architectural fees, but it does not include land. The “price per square foot” in the Greater Toronto Area ranges from $200 to $400, averaging at approximately $250.

While these costs associated with Toronto custom homes may seem intimidating, you can rest assured that our experts will work closely with you to reduce your costs as much as possible. It may even be the simple question of substituting unconventional materials for alternative options that could save you thousands of dollars.

Are custom built homes more expensive than buying?

Yes – Toronto custom homes will typically cost 20 to 30 percent more than purchasing either a new home from a builder or an older home in your neighbourhood. However, this “premium” allows you to have exactly what you want, from custom fixtures to accessibility features and everything in-between. Because every element is brand new, a custom built home will ultimately be valued higher due to its superior energy efficiency and enhanced curb appeal.

How long does construction take for custom homes?

New home construction can take anywhere from several months to a year, depending a number of factors including the size of the home, how intricate the custom features are, the location, and the time of year. Toronto custom homes face the unique challenge of Canadian winters and our professional team is experienced in working in all seasons to exceed client expectations. Keep in mind that the planning phase alone often takes months, because it requires ongoing discussion with you as the homeowner regarding your needs, preferences and available options, as well as inspections, acquiring relevant permits and much more.

Do custom homes in Toronto need home inspections?

Yes – in fact, an inspection is one of the most important aspects of the entire project. During the initial planning process, a detailed inspection performed by our in-house professional will help determine the budget based on the project’s individual characteristics and allow us to move on to the design and construction phases.

Once the building phase has begun, an inspector serves as a guide for a smooth construction process, pointing out any deficiencies that require immediate attention. Although we guarantee unsurpassed workmanship and overall customer service, there is always the small margin of human error that must be accounted for to ensure a perfect end result.

What should be in a new home construction contract?

A custom home construction contact, commonly known as the Agreement of Purchase and Sale, is a legally binding agreement that includes all of the elements that had been discussed throughout the initial planning process. This contract will typically include descriptions of,

  • The prospective home
  • What is and is not included in the “price per square foot”
  • Extra features requested (if applicable)
  • Allowances regarding the steps to take if the completed project goes over or under budget
  • The construction schedule
  • The agreed-upon payment schedule

There are numerous other crucial elements to ensure a smooth process from concept to completion. We will go through this contract with you in detail, providing you with a complete understanding of each element of your custom home construction and preventing any surprises along the way.
