Five Reasons to Choose an Inventory Home
November 01, 2018
There’s a lot that goes into buying a new home. First up, do you buy an existing home or build from the ground up? Is there a way to do both? Absolutely. You can purchase an inventory home.
Inventory homes are those a builder has constructed without a contract. They offer the same attractions as build-to-order homes but are move-in ready — allowing you to get settled in your new home faster. Not sure? Take a look at our top five reasons to purchase one.
You’ll Save Money
When it comes to move-in ready homes, builders often offer some sweet incentives including reducing the prices on select homes, allowing you to add upgrades or paying closing costs. Right now, builders in Trinity Falls are offering up to $50,000 in special incentives to buyers who close before Dec. 31.
It’s Still Brand New
Being the first to live in a new home is very attractive to many buyers, which is why building from the ground up is popular. Inventory homes haven’t been lived in, plus, they are built to the same high standards as build-to-order homes. They have all the same new-home bells and whistles, they are just as energy efficient and they are protected by the same warranties.
It’s Already Built
Building from the ground up can take four to six months or even longer. An inventory home is ready when you are. This is an advantage for buyers who are relocating. Instead of moving into a short-term rental or corporate housing while waiting for your new home to be built, you simply move into your new home. For example, if you purchase an inventory home in Trinity Falls now, you could be moved just in time to host a New Year’s Eve party.
Decisions, decisions. Purchasing a build-to-order home means a trip to the design center where you’ll have to decide on everything from paint color to tile surrounds. Some buyers find this exciting. Others find it stressful — especially after decision 1,000. An inventory home spares you that, but it doesn’t mean you’ll get basic features. Many builders add upgrades and structural options to their inventory homes.
You Still Have Choices
Does that mean you can’t make any choices at all? Of course not. Most communities — like Trinity Falls — work with a family of builders so you aren’t limited to just one. The builders, in turn, usually have several different inventory home selections. Did you fall in love with the model home? Ask the sales manager if that floor plan is available in a move-in ready home. Sometimes, the model home itself will be for sale. Also, not all inventory homes are completely finished so you might be able to change the flooring, tile or paint color to suit your style — just ask.
