*Not included in above are energy costs, loan fees, construction interest, insurance, etc.  Remember, if you buy any home you may have loan fees, etc. anyway.

If you buy a finished existing new home you are paying for the builders loan to build, interest, his insurance, his payment at closing of almost 2% of the sale price for excise tax, his cost for utilities, fuel, sales taxes paid, permits, utilities, etc.

With a custom construction loan, you usually get the write-off for the interest, loan fees, etc. since you own the property from the start.  (See your accountant.)
