The cost of building a house can vary considerably from lot to lot. There are two things that lead to a final price in a home. One of those is the bricks and mortar used to build the structure. The other is the cost to develop the property on which the house sits. Depending on where the lot is located there can be a large swing of costs.

Impact Fees

What is an Impact Fee?
Impact fees are a charge made by county or city governments and are used to pay for the impact of new development on infrastructure.  At some point when new homes are built, it may be necessary to build a new fire station, or a new school.  Existing homes have no such fee.
