What Are Quick Move-In Homes?

A Quick Move-In Home, or spec home, is a new construction home that can be purchased on an accelerated timeline.  It is somewhere in the build process, from "under construction" to "ready now" and is actively listed for sale. This means buyers are able to purchase a brand new home and move into it within a short period of time. The benefit of a quick move in home is that there is little to no build time to wait for – it’s ready to go!

What are the Benefits of buying a Quick Move-In Home?

Quicker Timeline

One of the defining benefits of quick move-in homes is the abbreviated timeline from contract to close! It is common for all structural and design choices to be pre-determined for a spec, which equates to saved time spent in meetings, waiting for permitting, and pre-construction. Depending on the status of the home at contract, customers have the ability to participate in the remaining build process, culminating with our Celebration Walk-Through at the home's completion!  

Fewer Decisions

Choosing thousands of options can be overwhelming. By choosing a new build quick move-in home, homeowners can rest assured that the selections made have been reviewed by our Design Team and will provide a cohesive, finished look. This new home will provide a blank slate that is able to be personalized with paint, furniture, and décor after moving in.

It's Brand New

Spec homes offer the benefits of new construction without the timeline! Enjoy materials and finishes in new condition and the cost savings attributed to energy-efficient, new homes. Learn more about the benefits of buying a new home vs an existing home.
