What Are Quick Move-In Homes?

Looking for a new home but exhausted by multiple rounds of tours and open houses? Found your dream home but don’t want to wait to build it? Worried that interest rates might change again before you’ve locked in what you want? It may be time to consider a quick move-in home instead of waiting for one to be built. Not only will this type of new home allow you to move in faster, but there are also other benefits you may not be aware of. 

The Benefits of Quick Move-In Homes

What are quick move-in homes? At JC Jackson Homes, our quick move-in homes are new homes that are partially or fully complete. These brand new, available homes have an expedited timeline compared to our homes built from lot purchase. Many of our quick move-in homes are built with unique features and upgrades, setting them apart from other homes you may see.

What are quick move in homes

The benefits of purchasing a quick move-in home include:

  • Shorter Wait Period. When you build a new home, the timeline for completion is generally longer. Quick move-in homes provide opportunity for a new construction home with less wait. At JC Jackson Homes, your time frame will depend on what stage of the building process the  home is currently in. Some are ready and waiting, others are a few weeks or months out. 
  • Easy Relocation. That shorter waiting period is great if you are looking to relocate for new job opportunities or changes in circumstances and you don’t want to wait to start a build from the ground up. All of the selection decisions are made. All you have to do is pick the one you want. But sometimes we do have the flexibility for you to personalize depending on the stage your home is in at the time of contract!
  • Less Stressful. Today’s chaotic real estate market cannot guarantee you will receive the home you place an offer on. Furthermore, if you do get an offer accepted, you may have to pay over the asking price for the home. With quick move-in homes, you don’t have the same level of competition because the price of the home is set.
  • Included & Upgraded Features. All builders have standard features and we offer many included features that are upgrades for other builders. We also have varying levels of upgrades depending on your budget. When you purchase a quick  move-in home you sometimes get even more of those upgrades for less, they may include outdoor living spaces, upgraded kitchen appliances and cabinets, upgraded bathroom features, unique finishes, smart home technology, and more. 
  • Potential Pricing Advantage. Quick move-in homes contain pricing advantages over homes that are still to be built. The price of the quick move-in home on the website/listing reflects the actual cost. In comparison to resale, there is no guesswork, warranties are included, and it eliminates the hassle of bidding wars. Choosing a quick move-in home also means being able to take advantage of current interest rates, which means that you may be able to increase your buying power. You might just find a home with more inclusions or larger for the same price.
