It is no secret that the real estate market broke records in 2020, and is showing no signs of slowing down as we head into 2021. According to the Columbus Realtors trade group, “More central Ohio homes sold in 2020 than ever before. They sold for more money, and they sold faster than ever.”
Perhaps due to concerns about the pandemic, the number of central Ohio homeowners who put their home up for sale declined last year compared with previous years. At the same time, more people bought homes than ever before prompted by historically low interest rates.
The result? List prices have become starting prices and bidding wars have become the norm.
The good news is that homebuyers interested in buying a new home don’t necessarily need to wait for a seller to decide to list their home. Trinity Homes has an inventory of new-build homes that are brand new, and have never been lived in before – yes, they even have that new home smell!
Referred to as move-in ready, featured, spec, or immediate delivery homes, inventory homes are designed and constructed without a specific purchaser in mind. They give buyers the opportunity to have a new and updated home without having to go through the process of building from the ground up or battling other buyers with multiple offers on the same house.
Even better, because they are often sold when they are close to completion, you can be comfortably settled in your new home within a matter of weeks. They are move-in ready and homebuyers are typically able to close quickly on these new-build homes, requiring little effort to bring your dream home to life.
