When searching for a new home, most buyers weigh the pros and cons of moving into a previously occupied house or building one from scratch. But there is another viable option: inventory homes. Constructed as a customized project for a client or model house by builders, these real estate properties come with a number of attractive benefits you should consider if you're in the market for a new home.
Why Buy Inventory Homes
1. Ready for Move-In
With inventory homes, you don’t have to worry about building a structure from the ground-up or waiting for months to move in. They are already finished and ready for occupancy. Because details like marble countertops, linoleum flooring, and walk-in closets have been completed, you don’t have to be stressed over the intricacies of interior decorating. You can view the finished real estate before closing the deal, and have the option to renovate or remodel it to suit your tastes afterward.
Generally, inventory homes haven’t been lived in, which means that they have no wear and tear from previous occupants. Because these homes were either built to suit a client's specifications or to serve as a model that showcases the builder's workmanship, you can expect them to have the same quality and attention to detail as any custom-built home. They also come with warranties for quality assurance.
3. Cost Effective
Sometimes buyers break their commitment to a customized home construction project. This could be due to a lack of financing, change of plans, or any number of other reasons. When this happens, builders are left with inventory homes on their hands. To make a quick sale and recoup construction costs, builders may offer discounts and upgrades, or list the selling price lower than normal. Smart real estate buyers can own a newly built home that’s worth more than its selling price, making it a good investment. And since you’re able to save on the purchase cost, you can use the savings for renovations or remodeling in the future.
