Is a quick move-in home right for you? A “quick move-in” is a real estate term used to describe new construction that is complete or nearly complete, allowing for an accelerated closing date compared to building new from the ground, up. There are great benefits involved if you find one that checks off your must-have list.

No Waiting Period

There is no seller with a move-out time frame, and you will not wait the 6-10 months that it takes to build. The builder wants to sell as quickly as possible, and quick move-in homes allow for closing in as little as 30 days. For cash buyers, it could be even faster.  Some custom home builders may even allow buyers to make final design selections if the home is not yet fully complete.
