What’s the Difference Between a Spec & Custom Home?

August 26, 2022

Homes are an extension of ourselves; the right home can make you feel like you have always lived there and that it was made for you. When it comes to being a part of the home-building process, there are some differences between a spec home and a custom home. Knowing the difference can help you determine what will work for you.

What Are New Construction Spec Homes?

A spec home is one that is built to the specifications or spec of a plan or blueprint that the builder has chosen and that they have set out to use. This means that the builder chooses a blueprint, and then they use that blueprint to build the home and sell it.

In this case, the buyer will not be involved in the building process. They are going to be buying a home after the fact and after it is fully done. This is a great option if you want a new home, but you are not interested in doing anything to customize it or change the way that the home is set up and finished.

What Is a New Custom House?

A custom home, on the other hand, is a home that the buyer has a part in designing and making choices about. This means they are part of the process from the very start. They are there when the basic blueprint is chosen and when the custom rooms or layouts are chosen. The buyers are also part of the entire process and the finishing touches.

A custom home will be something the buyer has a part in making decisions about. They will be able to make the home their own and make choices that help to make the home their own and unique to their tastes and desires. A custom home may cost more depending on the choices that are made by the buyer and the finishes that you decide you want to add to your custom home.

Both are great choices: Both get you a house that you will be able to be happy in and that you are going to be able to spend the years in. A great home is something that we all want and that we all deserve. Finding a great builder is the first step in either a spec home or a custom home. You can find builders that allow you to get the home you have always dreamed of.
