SPEC HOMES

A spec house is a house built by a builder, without any owner or involvement. The builder decides the style and layout of the house based on market trends as well as what they think will be most popular with buyers. You may have the option to choose from several interior layouts, as well as a variety of product options and color palettes, depending on when you are involved in purchasing the home. Most spec houses are built according to code, but not to exceed them, and are often not customized for the lot on which they are located.

A spec home can be a wonderful house, but it’s not unique or yours. Many owners of spec homes say, “It’s great but I wish it had …”.”

CUSTOM HOMES

A custom home, on the other hand, is tailored to your preferences, your needs and your property. The home’s overall design, layout, insulation and number of outlets will all be decided by you. This includes the exact finish and layout of the tiles and bathroom faucets. A designer in-house will help you decide which elements best suit your lifestyle.

Do you have a lot on a golf course  property that offers stunning views to the rear is yours? You don’t want to waste your view that has stunning views at the rear. Instead, build a spec home with lots of windows in the back.

Your custom home design team will ensure that your floor plan has primary rooms facing these views and places lesser-used spaces and utilities elsewhere. The builder can arrange windows and entire rooms to create privacy if the property is too close to neighbors. The same process can be used to overcome small lots and steep slopes.

You’ve worked hard for years to purchase the forever home that you have always wanted. Make sure it is truly your dream home. While a custom-built home will require a greater investment of time and money, it guarantees that you get exactly what your heart desires.

A spec home is a house that was designed and constructed by a builder without any buyer in mind. The builder took the chance that he will manage to sell the house once it is near completion or it is completed. It would seem that the builder is taking a chance here, hoping that a homebuyer will pick the house he has built. Therefore, the architecture is going to be based on a standard plan, perhaps using a design that is well known in the neighborhood that he is building it in.
