Avondale Real Estate
Avondale Basement Homes can be a great choice when buying a home in Arizona. These homes are more difficult to find and part of the reason is the build time. Builders tend to offer less basement homes because of the additional construction time a basement takes. It can add 30 or more days to the total construction time. It also costs more to build a basement home versus a two story home.
Many people come from the Midwest or back east and they wonder why Arizona has slab construction. Wouldn’t the cost be more back east? If so, why do they still build homes with basements? In other parts of the country where it is cold, the foundation of a home has to be below the frost line and they would have to dig down a few feet anyway, so it makes sense to go ahead and dig a full basement. In Arizona it is only 18″ of digging. There is also the extra costs on back fill, waterproofing, walls, excavation and the dollars to make that livable space.
