Presales Vs. Inventory Homes: Which Is Right For You?



Many homebuyers consider two things when looking for a new construction home; what can I personalize and how soon can I move in? Fortunately, there are two options to fulfill your new home needs and make the process smoother for you and your family: Presales and Inventory homes. Let’s take a look at Presales and Inventory homes and the benefits that come with each. 
 
What are Presale homes?
 
Presale homes you purchase before any construction begins, allowing you to personalize your floorplan and numerous selections throughout your home to make it special for you. 
 
What are Inventory homes?
 
Inventory homes are already planned, designed, and either under construction or move-in ready.  All floorplans and options are pre-selected by our team of talented designers. 

Presale Home Benefits

  1. Personalization Options: with the help of our highly trained design team, Truland Homes allows you to personalize your home and pick from an array of colors, cabinets, countertops, finishes, and so much more. You get to choose the floorplan you prefer, select structural options like the extended back porch, the gas fireplace, and whether you want a separate dining room or an additional bedroom. All the personalization options allow you to build a home that's perfect for you and your family.
  2. Delayed Mortgage Payments:  the presale process allows you time to build your dream home without the monthly mortgage payment. The construction process will take an average of 6-9 months giving you some extra time to save more for your down payment or closing costs, which is always a plus.
  3. Preferred Lot Choice:  after selecting the perfect community for you, you now choose the lot you prefer. Is it the one by the big pond? The one near the community pool and other amenities? Or do you prefer the lot in the back with a bit more privacy? Choose your lot, pick your plan, personalize your home, and enjoy the journey!

Inventory Home Benefits

  1. Fewer Decisions: one of the greatest benefits of an inventory home is that all the decisions have been made by our experts meaning inventory homes are less work and less stress for you. And don't worry; all of the selections chosen for our inventory homes are trending and current.
  2. Affordability: inventory homes are typically more affordable because there are no surprises based on your selections. There’s no need to worry about whether your wallet can afford your personal champagne tastes; inventory home prices are advertised on our website allowing you to know exactly what to expect. Pro tip - use our mortgage calculator to calculate your monthly payment based on your down payment contribution and interest rate. Our calculator will even include homeowner’s insurance and taxes. 
  3. Quicker Closing Times:  do you need to be in your home quickly? School and work schedules or even personal finances will often dictate when you need to be settled in your new home. With an inventory home, you’ll know exactly when it is scheduled to be completed based on the current stage of construction, and you can choose the home that fits your timeframe perfectly.
