The average cost to build a house in 2022 is $300,000, but that price tag varies state by state depending on availability of labor and materials, Forbes reports. While builder-grade new home construction costs around $150 per square foot, luxury or custom houses can cost upwards of $500 per square foot.

In states like South Dakota and Kansas, new construction projects average a relatively affordable $204,420 and $207,120, respectively, but in states like California and Hawaii, buyers can expect to pay an average of $405,440 and $412,840 for new home construction, respectively.
