Jacksonville New Homes - Spec Home
Speculative or “spec” homes are built by the developer in the hope that, once fully built, for sale with no particular buyer in mind. There often fully completed, but it’s still possible to catch a spec home under construction, wherein the builder will leave some room for your own personal touches. Some builders do more spec homes than others, preferring to build without a customer’s involvement. Other builders are just the opposite. They like the process of working with their customers and would prefer building a custom home rather than a spec home. Still others make little or no distinction between the two.
It’s probably the single highest price purchase you’ll make in your lifetime, so all buyers out there should have that home warranty high on the priority list when considering a new home. You’ve got to pay attention to the small stuff. Read the fine print. What’s hiding just behind the list of items the warranty covers? How do you make a claim, and how does the problem get resolved in the unlikely event of a dispute?. Many warranties are builder-backed. Others are purchased by the builder or the homeowner from an outside Home Warranty provider. You might even consider getting some supplemental coverage for even greater peace of mind. In fact, if you’re getting a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA), or Federal Housing Authority (FHA) loan, you are required to get a third-party warranty as a way to protect your, and the bank’s investment.

CoreLogic, a real estate data provider, announced that home prices have seen their most substantial rise since 2007. And that momentum continues in a lot of local markets, most importantly for us, this holds true for Jacksonville. There was an 8.3 percent rise in December 2012 compared with that month in 2011. And this not geographically isolated data. These rises were felt in 46 of the 50 U.S. states.
The fact that home prices also rose 0.4 percent in December from the previous month is an especially healthy sign, because sales are known to slow over the the winter months. Three great reasons that a rise in home prices is a very very good thing for the market: 1) higher prices can make homeowners feel wealthier. That encourages more consumer spending.
2) they entice some would-be buyers to purchase homes before prices rise further, and
3) they encourage more people to sell homes, and activity is a good thing
