Across the board (with the exeption of of a few vendors like appliances ) our vendors are reporting that their labor and material costs are relatively low. The pricing we have been getting for direct costs of new custom homes & large additions to homes in the Washington DC area have remained low for a few years now. However, we are noticing vendors getting slightly busier than they’ve been in the last year or two.

Here’s one of our excellent vendors, Glen Embry, of Metcalf HVAC, explaining what he thinks of the current market:

Paramount Construction nominated for another MNCBIA Custom builder award.
Here’s a look at the inside and an interview of the homeowner.
The judges from MNCBIA loved the home too. They almost wouldn’t
leave. Click Here & take a look at this home we designed and built.
This is a great example of why owners come to us for design
and construction. Anyone can design a “plain-old-box” of a house.
Lots of builder around town basically design and sell the exact same plan.
You can actually get the plan at your local Giant or Safeway while you’re
standing in the checkout line.
We’ve discovered that the Washington D.C. area has many owners
with more discerning tastes and sense of design. Our plans are
designed differently.

These are not “cookie cutter” homes. Take a look here

Yet, as great as the design is, our pricing very reasonable.
When we present a home price the price is all inclusive.
Many other builders start at $85 per square foot over the phone.
The problem is that by the time they add permits, excavation, engineering,
dumpsters, driveways, upgrade the vinyl floor to wood, upgrade the vinyl
siding to hardiplank their over $200 per square foot. Plus it takes these guys
months of your time until you finally extract all the information out of ’em.

Let me know what you’ve found in the market place as you talk with
building companies out there. I’d like to hear from you.

Check out Kevin taking another concept in his mind to a completed new custom home
that was just nominated for another (2nd of 3) MNCBIA Custom Builder Awards.
This new home in Bethesda was completed in around 5 months. The happy
homeowners should be moving in any day now. If you would like a tour of any of
our homes call 301-370-6463 and ask for Kevin or Rob.

Another reason it’s a great time to build your custom home —
home prices are low and work quality is high. Here is an electrical
contractor who works in the Montgomery County Maryland,
Fairfax County Virginia, N.W. Washington D.C. area and works
on new homes for area home builders:
