If you’ve been on the hunt for a new construction home but much of the process seems complicated or overwhelming, consider opting for a Spec Home instead!
Spec Homes, AKA Quick Delivery Homes, are new construction homes built with standard options that cannot be customized pre-construction. However, lack of customization options doesn’t mean lack of quality.
Read on the learn the top four reasons why choosing to build a Spec Home could be the perfect option for you and your family!
Unlike traditional new construction, Spec Homes are clear-cut when it comes to pricing.
Many buyer’s entering into the new construction process tend to to be unaware of the necessary budget increase they’ll need to accommodate any options or upgrades. In fact, it’s not uncommon for buyer’s to spend 20 – 30% more than the base price of a home after all is said and done.
Spec Homes alleviate this issue completely since the options and upgrades are set firmly without the option to be changed. This allows buyers to accurately gauge their budget by the price tag set on the home without worrying about further costs.
If there’s one element new construction is not known for, it’s being a simple process. Buyers are often tasked with customizing the most trivial of details in order to personalize their future home to the smallest degree. This lengthy and tiring process may lead to increased timelines, larger budgets and a prolonged building process as specifications change to the consumer’s demands.
Spec Homes take the selection process out of the consumer’s hands entirely, opting for standardizing the included features rather than allow them to be individually selected. This prevents budget increases, missed time deadlines, and removes the largest stress factor out of the equation for buyers.
Just because simplicity replaces specificity when it comes to Spec Homes, doesn’t mean that quality is replaced at all.
In fact, many may be surprised to find out that Spec Homes are outfitted with the most popular quality selections that many consumers previously selected in their custom new construction homes.
How are they so cost-effective then? Well, just like with any other purchasable item, things tend to be cheaper when purchased in bulk, rather than individually. This savings is directly transferred to the customer, allowing them to have a luxurious option at a cheaper rate than normal.
New construction homes on average require around nine months to complete from beginning to end. Within that time frame many aspects can increase that schedule, whether that be material selection or interference from the natural elements.
For those working on a tight schedule, Spec Homes offer a great compromise to acquiring a piece of new construction while adhering to time constraints within one’s personal life. The typical Spec Home can be completed in four months from start to finish, making it a great option for those looking to move quickly.
