On the hunt for a new Florida custom home, but dreading the process?
The struggle is real! We at ICI Homes hear it frequently from prospective customers and visitors who must (or want to) move, yet view the home-buying process as a chore.
Some people simply don’t enjoy selling a home, buying a new one, then enduring the move. Even when it’s to their dream destination or a long-awaited event like retirement.
We got your back, though.
If you’re not up for a custom build or want to short-circuit some moving hassles, consider buying a new home that’s already built.
Here’s why an inventory home might be right for you.
What is it?
Inventory homes are built to sell. Builders typically build a certain number of proven floor plans in a community, varying exterior and interior designs, yet keeping them fairly neutral. These finished homes are ready for purchase and often, exactly what some buyers seek.
Other terms you’ll hear to describe inventory homes are stock homes, showcase homes, spec homes, and quick move-ins.
No need to wait for a custom build
Building a new home can be worth the time and effort. We’ve built custom homes all over the state of Florida for more than four decades, and promise building a home can be mostly painless.
But right now you’d rather avoid that time and effort, and that’s okay! The key is buying your perfect new home already built. Inventory homes give you that option.
Quick solutions for quick moves
You might like to build a new custom Florida home, but the timing isn’t right for your current circumstances.
Perhaps you need to move quickly for a job transfer or family matter. Or, you have a golden opportunity to sell your current home for top dollar, but haven’t even begun thinking about the home you’ll buy to replace it.
Inventory homes get you out of those jams. In most cases, they’re finished and available for purchase, or in various stages of construction.
Bonus: if you find an inventory home still under construction — especially in the early stages — going to contract on it may give you the opportunity to customize interior finishes and materials.
So you get a custom build anyway, with the speed and ease of buying and inventory home.
