While a spec home is not the right choice for those who want to choose every single detail of their new home, it is a good option for those who want to enjoy the benefits of owning a new home without waiting several months before moving in. Still, this is not to say that the spec home buyer doesn’t enjoy any options. Rather, the spec home buyer typically does enjoy choosing from a limited number of colors, floor plan options and cabinetry styles. By limiting the number of options available, the builder keeps the cost down. This, in turn, makes purchasing a new home more affordable for those who are on a tight budget.
