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 29 move in ready homes or spec homes available in 3 new home communities from 2 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.
