This really depend on your location in the US, cost will vary from the low $30's per sqaure foot to excess of $400.
Check with mutiple contractors in the area that you decide to build.
City permit fee's will also vary. Check with the local building department.

If you decide to build, consider 'modular homes' (not to be confused with manufactured (mobile) homes.
They are cheaper, stronger and take a lot less time to build.
