Subject: RE: Architectural Fees for Residential projects

Last year I was involved with a spec. job in So-Cal. $1,200,000 was budgeted
for all hard/soft costs. Archs. fee including permits/engineering/city fees
was to be $15/sf. Projected sales price is to be 3.5 to 4 mill. I have seen
the same arch. do quite a few similar projs.
Comment: Does it mean that for a 5000sf home (sort of nearly a mansion)
a client would pay 75K in archit fees?
Sounds insane to me.
Sincerely, Gregory from Oz

Would that be insanely high or insanely low?  5000SF nowadays seems to be just a hair larger than a standard yuppie home, which in my area (mid-atlantic) tends to be in the 4000SF range.  What is impressive is the anticipated margin.
