If you’re planning on purchasing a new home, there are a few options available to you. One type of home that’s somewhat of a hybrid between a custom home and a model home is the spec home. Spec homes provide a number of advantages.


Move-in Ready

The beauty of a spec home is that you won’t have any work to do on the house when you move in, so you can start enjoying it right away. This is not the case for many homes on the market.


Brand New

Everything in your spec home will be brand new. This means it should be years before you have to begin replacing or repairing major aspects of the home like the furnace, appliances, and roof. You won’t be stuck with hefty repairs or maintenance bills shortly after your big move.


See Before You Buy

With a custom home, you have to put your imagination to hard work. That isn’t the case with a spec home. By the time you see the spec home, the bones are already in place. All you need to choose are the finishing details. Spec homes allow you to see what you’re getting before you buy.


Shorter Waiting Time

Unlike a completely custom home, the wait time for a spec home is fairly short. Because most of the major construction is already complete, your new home can be ready much more quickly than with a custom home.


Some Customization Possible

Unlike a model home, which is completely built beforehand, you often have the chance to provide input into some of the features of a spec home. This allows you to choose a home that you truly love with less work than that required to build a completely custom home.


Less Expensive

There are several factors that need to be considered before building or purchasing a home. One of the most important is your budget. If you’re wanting to get a little more bang for your buck, then a spec home is right up your alley! You’ll still be getting the gorgeous design features that you would get in a custom home, but you’ll be paying significantly less.
