What will a new construction home *really* cost you?

Follow me as I tour a Parkwood model home and discuss standards v. upgrades

As your Sterling Ranch new construction realtor, I'm often asked what's included - and not included - in the base price of different Sterling Ranch homes.

For example, what's a "standard" kitchen island, and what does an upgraded island look like (see 2:50 of the video)?

Or if you want to add a porch, how much is the upgrade cost (see 5:00 of the video)?

In this video I tour a Parkwood model home in Stapleton for Focus Real Estate's sister website the Stapleton Scoop ( Everything I discuss applies to Sterling Ranch as well.

One of the services I offer my Sterling Ranch clients is an estimated "all-in" budget for their Lennar, Richmond, Wonderland, or any other builder they choose - before they sign their purchase contract. I lean on my extensive upgrade and design center experience (I feel like I’m at the design center every week!) to help get you as precise a number as possible.

Also, I take pride in helping clients achieve a certain design "look" - within their budget - by understanding what can and can't be upgraded. In short, one of my goals is to help you maximize the impact of every upgrade dollar you spend (see 4:30 of the video for more)!
