custom home builders Myrtle BeachThere are three types of home builders that you can choose from if you’re looking to build a house. These are custom home builders Myrtle Beach, spec builders, and he tract builders. There are several aspects that set each builder apart. However, you need to consider certain factors to make sure that you’re investing in the kind of home that will suit your budget, preference, and stage of life.

Spec Vs. Tract Vs. Custom Home Builders Myrtle Beach

Tract Home Builders

Tract new home builders purchase large tracts of lands where they build subdivisions that commonly provide a choice of three floor plans. Although the buyer will only have a little say on the hone design other than a basic floor plan, the tract houses are cheaper compared to the spec homes or the custom home builds. Plus, they also have a shorter timeline.

Another benefit to hiring tract builders is that they have built dozens and even hundreds of homes so they often search for proven and durable building materials that can help speed up the new home construction while boosting the energy efficiency of the house. So, if you want complete control over your dream home, you have to hire a custom home builder Myrtle Beach. If you prefer lower costs and faster construction, then a tract home builder will be a great fit.

Spec Home Builders

Spec new home builders derive their name from the projects that the take on, which are by nature, speculative. They purchase land without a buyer and they speculate that they will be able to sell a house that they’ve built on it to a future homebuyer. They buy a small plot of land, build at least one house on it and put it up in the market.

Another benefit of working with a spec new home builder is that they are more flexible when it comes to the cost of the house, especially if it’s been on the market for a long time. Another advantage is that although a few of their houses might have the same layout, these spec home builders are more flexible when it comes to the style. They also provide a few unique home designs just like custom Myrtle Beach home builders but without the hefty price.

Custom Home Builders

Meanwhile, custom home builders will turn the wishes of an individual home buyer into their dream home. The home buyer will have total control over the floor plan as well as other details. Whether you want to have an engineered wood siding or a solar panels on the roof, a custom home builder can make it come true.

Since a custom built home is unique, custom home builders only build a few houses per year. They construction timeline is longer than building a tract or spec house because custom home builders need to make sure that every detail of the house meets the specifications of the home buyer.
