First, let’s cover what a spec home is.

Spec homes can be called many things: Spec homes, Move-in ready homes, Inventory homes, or Quick Possession homes. Spec homes are new homes that don’t have buyers just yet and are built based on the speculation of what buyers are looking for.

We build these homes for customers who are looking for a new home to be moved into quickly and do not want to wait 6 months to build one. We have the opportunity to choose the most popular floor plans, features and finishes which is why there is such a high demand for this type of home.

There are many advantages to buying a spec home versus a brand new or custom-built house.

  1. With a spec home, you can see the home before you purchase it! Allowing you to see all the colours, finishing, layout, and the opportunity to plan where all your furniture and belongings will go to make this house a place you call home. Generally, when you are looking to build a new home you are purchasing off a floor plan or a showhome. It’s going to be some time before you really start to see it take shape, with a spec home you get a new home without the wait.
  2. A major advantage is that the cost of the spec home is predetermined, and fixed which means you know what your final price will be before you purchase your home. this makes financing approvals and your personal financial planning much easier.
  3. A spec home is a brand new home. You have the advantage of moving in usually within 60 days or less, and not having to deal with the fixing up or renovations that you may find in a used home.
  4. Depending on the stage of the spec home you purchase you may still have time to pick a few of the interior finishes, you will need to check with your Avalon representative to confirm which of these custom choices are available for each home.
