There’s nothing quite like moving into a brand-new home. If you’re looking for affordable new homes, Florida is a great place to consider. New homes in Florida tend to be inexpensive, especially if you’re willing to live away from the water. You can get a better idea for how much new homes in Florida cost – and where the best ones are located – by reading on below.

An Overview of the State

When it comes to real estate, the top five counties are Miami-Dade, Broward, Lee, Palm Beach and Pinellas. Each of these counties is located in areas that have several options, especially when it comes to buying new homes in Florida. In other words, they don’t cater only to one particular type of home buyer or another, and you can find low-priced homes – along with much more luxurious ones – in each.

Before comparing prices for new homes in Florida, it’s smart to get a handle on what the average sales price is for homes in the state. These days, the average sales price for a one-bedroom home in Florida is $186,000. Two-bedroom homes sell for around $215,000, three-bedroom homes sell for around $270,000, and four-bedroom homes sell for around $405,000. These averages include new homes and older homes, though, so a little more digging is needed to get a handle on how much new homes cost around the state.

Interestingly enough, the most expensive county in Florida, based on the average sales price of its homes, is Franklin County.
