Depends on a few factors. Distance from town, materials used, whether or not you need a cistern etc. But roughly a basic concrete house reinforced with steel rebar, glass/vinyl windows, ceramic tiles will cost between $100 and $150 US per square foot.

It also depends on what your contractor is like. We have built here and learned the hard way. Feel free to PM me.

I paid $246.00 US per square foot for my condo in 1995.

renski,
Our Casita (3.5 miles north of town) ran approx. $185.00US per sq. ft. in 2005. collyk hit the nail on the head. PM her if you are considering building on the island.

A condo sale includes the cost of land within the square footage price. Condos on the beach typically run around $300 - 350 US per sq ft.

Yes indeed the builder you choose is a huge factor when it comes to cost overruns too.

For clarity are we quoting cost to build or cost paid to purchase a property?
