Edit: this is just hard construction costs
That seems reasonable. Im sure its higher than here in DFW, which will have a wild range in construction cost depending on exactly where. City vs non city etc. Our bottom range will be 75-95 psf for ground up construction cost. Thats for your average spec home. Of course they sell low as well....
