Spec Built Residential Construction
The term “spec” is short for speculative home for sale. Builders, even custom builders, sometimes build homes for sale without a buyer in mind. Typically, a spec home will have much of the design efforts already complete before being put on the market.
However, it is possible to find a spec home under construction. Depending on how far along in the building process, you can still add your unique signature. Builders often allow you to make some design selections such as paint colors, tile, countertop and flooring materials and fixture choices.
