Usually, when one thinks of building a home, they enquire about the cost per sqft. Is it the correct way to inquire about home construction costs?
When you go to buy a car, do you simply ask for the price? No, right? You enquire about the specs first, like the engine capacity, build quality, maintenance, etc. Likewise for a home. Rather than focusing just on the sqft price, you should closely see the specifications of a home, the build quality, and future maintenance, etc.
So, when people quote off-hand numbers like "Rs. 2000 per sqft main bahut accha ghar ban jaata hai". We think this statement does not tell you about the cost of the home as it is an incomplete statement.
We recommend plot owners get professional help when they compare the cost of two builders as it is not easy to compare the specifications, build quality, etc.
One more important thing, you should not judge the cost of a home on a per sqft basis. As, different people measure the sqft on a different basis for different types of areas like covered area, half-covered, etc. So, the better way is to always see the total cost for the pre-defined construction area.
