How much does it cost to build a house in Addis Ababa

Cost to build a house

Building a house will cost you anywhere from 150 – 500 dollars of sq ft depending on its size, location, labor, and the material.  the main properties cost around 448 dollars per square meter, while luxury real estate in Angola is ten times more expensive at more than $ 4,500  per square meter, according to data from the Lamudi property portal

So if you are building 22 hundred sq feet story with an unfinished basement you already owe a lot, expect to pay from 300 thousand to a million-plus to build it from start to finish. So if you are building a base model nothing special or fancy a new well-built home you will be safe to estimate about a 150 dollar sq feet, 300 dollars sq feet you will be building a nice home.

So if you want to get in-depth there are so many factors affecting home building pricing that is impossible to have a one side 

cost to build a house in addis ababa

Instead here are some important factors you need to consider if you wanna dive deeper and get a clearer view estimating your bill. So I have broken this down into four factors 

Location

A hot market is exactly the things that are expensive to build expensive to buy and its more expensive to hire builders, if you are in a hot market you have to realize the labor cost and even the material cost might increase substantially, For easy example think about the difference of building a home in  Addis Ababa, Bole vs  Dire Dawa.

Size

Building a smaller home will generally mean it would be cheaper but remember you will always have a base price to get somebody in a site, building bigger might mean more complex construction and common material and even specialized labor 

Labor

You should know that builders are not all same any builder can build a house but not everyone can build you a well build-ed house if there are labor shortages be prepaid to pay a premium  to get your project moving to the height of the line 

Material

They say 80% percent of the home is in variable meaning that cost is pretty much the cost the same two by four cost is the same in an average house and in a luxurious house and the same concrete is the same thereto. But the biggest junk comes in finishing cost that 20% variable cost finishes can mean a difference between 900 thousand bills and 1.2 million dollar bill do you know what your market is doing in these important factors?
