If you're asking "How much does a website cost?", you're asking a good question. However, there is another question that will give you a more meaningful answer.
The better question is "How much will it cost me to own, operate and maintain my website?"
The initial cost of planning, designing and creating your website is only part of the equation.
You also need to consider the cost of your time (or the fees you will pay for outsourced skills) for ongoing website maintenance such as keeping your content up to date, or writing news items or blog posts. In addition, there will be other outgoings such as web hosting fees, and perhaps occasional technical support. Oh, and possibly the cost of replacing the whole thing in the future if you decide you're unhappy with it, or with your web designer or developer.
With websites, as anything else, you get what you pay for. An initial cheap outlay is not necessarily the cheapest or best in the long run.
In short, try to look at total cost of ownership.
