Building vs. Buying a Spec Home

Building is not for everyone, we get that!  However, you still want the Niblock Home’s craftsmanship and quality?  Then consider a coming soon home where our award-winning designs have been thoughtfully tailored to enhance your lifestyle.

Imagine buying a home and immediately moving in, no waiting for paint to dry or for the builders to finish up final touches. For people buying ready-to-move-in inventory homes, this can be a wonderful benefit.

But some homebuyers desire the customization that comes with designing their perfect home and overseeing the construction. These folks are fine with the wait because the final product is often as close to a dream home as possible.

Neither of these options are necessarily better than the other. It truly depends on what’s important to you and your family. If you’re looking to move and aren’t sure which option is right for you, take a look at some of these benefits of each. It may help you with the decision.

Benefits of Building Your Dream Home

Complete Control

Building your own home gives you full control over every detail, big and small. Everything from the building layout to the countertops and cabinets are up to you. Design an enormous kitchen with a walk-in pantry or a master bedroom complete with a shower and soaking tub. Whatever you want, you can have.

Location, Location, Location

When buying an inventory home, you don’t have much say over the location. After all, the home’s already there, you can’t just move it. When you build your own home, you can choose where to build. Find the perfect neighborhood or build on a larger plot of land. It’s up to you.

Move-In Ready Inventory Home Benefits

Move-In Ready

This one may seem obvious, but you can’t overstate how great it is to find a beautiful home and move in right away. As soon as you close the sale, you can start packing up boxes and shipping them over.

Lower Cost

One significant benefit of purchasing an inventory home is the cost savings. Majority of our Spec homes are priced to sale and are typically priced lower than our to be built homes. Also, an inventory home is already built, so you don’t have to worry about construction going over budget. That’s a big win.

Way Less Stress

When shopping for inventory homes, your biggest worry is finding the right place for your budget and style. When building a house, you’re likely worried about everything. With so many building projects going on at once, the whole process can sometimes feel overwhelming.

Details are hand selected by our Designers

Remember too that our inventory homes are not generic, cookie-cutter homes. Our designers do an amazing job with all of the selections that go into each of our homes.  From the light fixtures to the bathroom tile, every detail is well thought out.

While we might be missing some of the benefits of both, this list should give you an idea of what to expect. If you’re looking to completely customize the perfect home for you and your family, great, opt to build that custom home. Think of how rewarding it’ll be to settle in by the fireplace at night or brew coffee in your sunny kitchen in the morning, in the home built just for you.

Maybe you’re looking to move right away and want to put your savings towards other expenses (a new furniture set or landscaping, perhaps?). Or maybe you’re not looking for the added stress of overseeing a 7-9 month construction project. Either way, go for a ready-to-move-in inventory home. You’ll be ready to move as soon as you close the sale without any of the added hassle.

Whatever you choose, there’s really no wrong answer. You’ll love your new Niblock home no matter what.  We currently have over 15 Inventory homes throughout our communities, and 8 of those homes are move-in ready today! To see our full list, click here.
