Just wondering what typical % mark-up from cost (materials and labor) for upgrade options a builder such as Toll Brothers or others offers?

Is it 10% of supposed list price, 20%, more?

I've seen them charge 700+ for an over the stove microwave, that they probably paid less than 200 for, and was installed in less than 30 minutes by someone with a third grade education.

In my experience (after buying three newly built homes), it's more than 100%.
