If the only difference between two houses is one is a 1-story and the other is a 2-story, then why does the 1-story house cost more per square foot? The reason a 1-story house in Spring Texas costs more per square foot than a 2-story is because it costs more to build the 1-story house.
Two of the most costly parts of a house are its roof and its foundation. A 2-story home with the same square footage as a 1-story Spring Texas home will have half the roofing costs and half the foundation costs. There are other economics achieved in building up versus out but the foundation and roofing are the two main cost savers.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
