With the decline in the market, I'm seeing a few builders that have started building a product that is cheaper to build, offering more house for the money, but lacking in curb appeal, i.e., a big box vs. a design with more character. I'm working on an appraisal right now selling for $218,000 with 3045 heated square feet (photo attached), vs. some neighboring homes of a more traditional design selling for $25,000 - $50,000 more in the 2400+- sq. foot range. I've looked at several "big box" style sales vs. the more traditional designs (same/similar sq. ft., new) and see a 5-10% difference in price that I believe reflects the design / appeal of the properties (all else being equal / similar). Just curious of your experiences and how you would describe such a house (see photo) in terms of architectural design, i.e., colonial, traditional, etc... Pretty plain vs. neighboring homes.
