What Is A Spec Home?

A spec home is a new, move-in-ready home built by home builders. These are houses that are built before a home buyer makes a purchase. These homes are perfect for buyers who cannot wait for the home to be finished or aren’t interested in the construction process, spec homes are a convenient option!

Are spec homes built without designer options? The answer is NO! Our spec homes are built with the same attention to detail, and designed based on the trends and needs of the particular community and market in which the home is being built. The fixtures and finishes inside and outside of our spec homes are hand selected by a talented team of construction professionals. They are built with care and great design.


Why Buy A Spec Home?

Often times, buyers who have just sold their current home or are moving out of a condo or apartment are only given a month or two to find a new home making a spec home the perfect solution. They are able to move into their home quickly with little to no delay!  Purchasing a spec home is also simple! Although building a brand-new home is rewarding and exciting, it can also be a selection process with many decisions. Although these decisions are often fun ones and include things like selecting your countertop style, flooring options, paint colors, and more, some prefer to take a hands-off approach. In these cases, a spec home might be the answer as it may have all the desired details and features, but requires very little effort on the part of the buyer, other than the actual move.

Also, many consider purchasing a spec home because it is tangible – they are able to feel, touch, and see the home before purchasing! Many buyers love the certainty of purchasing a home that is already constructed. They have the opportunity to walk the hallways, select the placement of their furniture, and imagine life in the space.
