A lot of people think that buying a new home means building a new home from scratch. While that is one of the options, there are two other options for home buyers looking to buy new.

The three types of new homes are: move-in ready, under construction and to-be-built. 



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'll save at least 2 months in the overall process.

3. To-Be-Built

To-be-built homes are your 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.




How long does it takes to build a new home? On average, it takes about 7 to 9 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.
