Houston Communities with Inventory for Sale

A spec home is a new construction home where the builder or developer is building the home using his capital, speculating that it can be sold into the market profitably. The spec home or spec house term is builder jargon and is often referred to as an inventory home or a quick delivery home. Because is it under-construction or recently complete, it is an ideal option for relocating buyers even though few buyer changes may be possible. The key for the relocating buyer is that they can get into the new home quickly.

There are currently 4,023 move in ready homes or spec homes available in 693 new home communities from 41 new home Builders. Unlike a custom home or a home built based on a builders plan, most or all of the options have been specified by the builder or developer. Builders will often build an inventory of new homes when market conditions are favorable for new construction. It also gives the builder’s crews work to even out the ebbs and in-flow of new sales.

While a fully custom home can take six months to a year to complete, spec homes can be yours from now or as much as three months out. That time saved also saves you money by improving or eliminating the problem of holding double mortgages or storing your belongings. It also saves you the trouble and investment of finding temporary housing in Houston. Many builders keep a consistent schedule of spec builds, to ensure they have several homes available at various stages of completion. This ensures you can find your perfect balance between customization and final availability.

Even with the convenience of fast availability, spec homes in Houston, TX offer all of the benefits one would expect from a new home. For starters, those who invest in a spec home while still in the construction phase can enjoy several customization options, depending on the builder and the stage of construction. From appliances to flooring to countertops and everything in between, you'll never have to compromise to meet your modern needs when you invest in a new home.
