What is a spec house?


We often get questions from homebuyers about industry terminology. Like, what exactly is a ‘spec house?’ Simply put, a spec house is a move-in ready home.

A move-in ready home is newly constructed and is either fully move-in ready or close to being move-in ready. These homes are sometimes referred to as spec homes, inventory homes, quick move-in homes (QMIs), or quick delivery homes.

What are the benefits of a move-in ready home?

Move-in ready homes provide homebuyers with a shorter wait time and typically include designer finishes and features. Below are the top three benefits to choosing an HHHunt Homes move-in ready home!

  1. Less waiting. With a move-in ready home, you can be in your new home in as little as 90 days. Less time waiting means more time living in your dream home.
  2. Less Stress. Move-in ready homes have structural and design features already selected for you. Decision-making is left to the experts; making memories is left for you.
  3. A Fixed Price. Since move-in ready homes’ options and design features are pre-selected, it is usually safe to assume the price advertised is what you will pay. This is very desirable for financing, as it’s a fixed amount.
