Who Should Buy an Inventory Home or Quick-Move-in Home?

Inventory homes are great for anyone who wants to live in a new construction home but due to timing or because they don't want the burden of picking every option, they opt for a home that is ready to move in or nearing completion. They have the same modern layouts, beautiful features, and quality materials found in any other newly built home. Because the vast majority of the construction process has been completed before the buyer engages with the builder, you can manage your move, without having to worry about construction timelines.

If you need to move with children, buying an inventory home lets you live in a new home in a fantastic neighborhood, without the stress of building the house. You can move into a community zoned to the right school district for your kids, cut down on the stress of buying a house, and make the move before the school year starts.

Military families looking for off post housing should consider buying inventory homes. You can invest in a home you love, built by a builder you trust. Families relocating with a military spouse should ask builders about any special incentives for service members.

NewHomeSource lists 149 Inventory homes in Des Moines. The available inventory homes start at just $434,990, and have up to 6 bedrooms, so you can easily find the perfect new construction home for your lifestyle and budget today.

What is an Inventory Home or a Quick Move-in Home?

Des Moines builders often design and build homes in advance of selling their homes. These new construction homes include the most popular features and finishes, so people who can’t wait on the construction process, but still want to invest in a newly built house, can still make their dream home a reality.

These new houses come with many names. An Inventory home may be called a spec home, a move-in ready home, or more creatively, a market home. It means the new build home is complete and ready now for occupancy. Quick Move-in homes are likely under construction. They may be designated as available soon or under construction, but you can count on occupancy in a shorter-time frame compared to a new build from a floorplan. If it is early in the new build process, you may be able to pick from an array of options and upgrades and still get your home sooner than if you were building from a floorplan.

There are many considerations when deciding whether to buy a quick move in home. The main tradeoffs are in lot and option selection vs. the time you have available. Here's a primer from Michelle Lerner covering options when you want a quick move-in house in Des Moines, WA.
