The Pros & Cons of Move-In Ready Homes

What Is a Move-In Ready Home?

Move-in ready homes are newly constructed homes that are almost finished or were recently finished. These brand-new residences are designed and carefully constructed by homebuilders, equipped with modern fixtures and appliances, but they don’t have a purchase contract in place—making them a perfect option for homebuyers who want a new home but don’t have the time or budget to wait for their very own “from-scratch” dream home. 

The Benefits

So, what are the benefits of buying a move-in ready home? We’re glad you asked! Here are some of the top reasons why more and more homeowners are choosing to invest in ready-built homes:

You Don’t Have to Be Patient

Patience is a virtue and is almost nonexistent in real estate; if you’ve tried scouring the internet for a suitable fixer-upper or consulted with a contractor only to learn that a completely customized home can take years to complete, then you know exactly what we’re talking about. The beauty of investing in a move-in ready home is knowing that it’s ready for your family almost immediately. 

You Won’t Have to Make a Ton of Decisions

Since move-in ready homes have already been constructed, you won’t have to make the same design decisions as other homebuyers who are waiting on their newly constructed homes. All you’ll have to do is sign on the dotted line to enjoy the perks of a brand-new residence. 

You’ll Know Exactly What You’re Purchasing

Pre-owned homes or fixer-uppers can come with a lot of baggage. When you invest in a move-in ready home, you’ll know exactly what you’re signing up for. After all, these homes are up to code and were recently constructed by professional homebuilders. 

The Drawbacks 

While there aren’t a ton of cons to investing in a move-in ready home, they aren’t for everyone and you should have all of the facts before jumping the gun. For example, you won’t have the same creative freedom when it comes to personalizing your new home’s layout and cosmetic details. That’s because most of these homes are already completed upon purchase. These homes also sell very quickly! If you find a move-in ready home that you love, don’t hesitate to put in an offer.
