What is the difference between a spec home and a custom-built home?

Love.

A custom-built home is built for the homebuyer.  When they make a decision, it is a little about money but mostly it is about building a home they will love living in.

They choose the best lot and are willing to pay a bit more for it, because they will enjoy it.

They decide to upgrade the windows, so they can enjoy the view they paid for.

They add insulation to the bedroom areas, so everyone has their privacy.

They upgrade the flooring, to something that will wear well and look good for the long term.  Spec houses must look as good as the other spec houses that are for sale at the same time.

They upgrade the garage door opener so they can add storage over the cars or add a car lift.

The home’s owners are checking in and walking through the home as it is being built to make sure that everyone is doing their job properly.

They take care of the home because they know how much everything costs to add.  It will always be a new home to them.

A spec home is built for profit for the builder.  This home was built to be loved.
