Questions About How Much Does It Cost

Is this home worth it?

I am looking at buying a cheap house that needs some major upgrades, including raising the ceiling. I would like to make it a cathedral ceiling. The roof looks like it is sagging and would need to be redone anyway. Is it worth buying a house under 100,000 if it needs these big remodels? Any ideas of what I could expect to pay? Thanks.

What does it cost to build a house on undeveloped land?

I am considering building a home in canton Georgia. 1500 square foot or so not high end not low end but say the upper end if middle of the road. The property I am looking at has only a barn but there is underground electrical service to it. No water. The likely building site is several hundred feet from the public road. I'm struggling with getting a solid handle on what it would really cost to essentially build this home with all the stuff that makes a house livable: gas, water, phone, septic etc. It would be no good to have a great piece of land and a half finished house because building cost went over budget. Thoughts?
