We offer a variety of options for buyers that are interested in purchasing a new home. These options can accommodate a variety of schedules, including those who need to move quickly and those who are not in a hurry. Many buyers think that buying a new home means building a new house from scratch resulting in months of waiting. While that is one of the options, there are two other options for home buyers looking to buy new that have a shorter timeframe.

The three types of new homes are: Move-In Ready, Under Construction and Build & Personalize. 



1. Move-in Ready

Of all the options, buying a move-in ready home is probably the simplest and quickest way to purchase a new home for sale in your area.

A move-in ready home is one that has completed construction. Depending on the type of loan you choose, you can be in your home within 30-45 days or as little as 2-3 weeks for cash buyers.

2. Under Construction

For many homebuyers, the most difficult part of building a new home is waiting.

New homes under construction offer buyers the opportunity to shorten the wait. By choosing a home already in progress, you could save at least 2 months in your timeline.

3. Build & Personalize

Build & personalize homes are Omega's build from scratch option. When you choose to build a new home, you not only pick your community, lot, and floor plan, but you also choose all of the color selections and personalization options & features. We offer this option in every community that we actively build in, so you can build the home of your dreams in the location of your choice!





How long does it takes to build a new home? On average, it takes about 4 to 6 months, but varies quite a bit based on the size of the home, the time of year, and inclement weather delays (rain).

Once you've signed the contract for a to-be-built home it typically takes 30-45 days before the construction process can begin. During this time, we are finalizing plans, gathering permits, and preparing for construction.

For each community, you can view available Floor Plans or Homes for Sale. 

The Omega home building process starts by providing you with the tools and resources you need to make the best choices for you and your family.
