Move-In Ready Phoenix Spec Homes

You’ve got to love the Arizona Regional MLS. Run what should be a simply search for spec homes – homes built by a builder either for someone who since has walked away or built for the specific purpose of selling as move-in ready options – and the first home that comes up is this 1930-built beauty:

[idx-listing mlsnumber=”4638991″ showlocation=”true”]

And there are another 200 like that – homes long since constructed, all marked as “Completed Spec Home” because, and I’m only guessing here, the listing agent doesn’t know what that field really means.

Enough of that, though. Let’s talk about some real spec homes available now and not requiring a drive to the outer edges of the Phoenix real estate market (though there are some there, too):

[idx-listing mlsnumber=”4600608″ showextradetails=”true” showlocation=”true”] [idx-listing mlsnumber=”4534906″ showextradetails=”true” showlocation=”true”] [idx-listing mlsnumber=”4628313″ showextradetails=”true” showlocation=”true”] [idx-listing mlsnumber=”4621380″ showextradetails=”true” showlocation=”true”] [idx-listing mlsnumber=”4687111″ showextradetails=”true” showlocation=”true”]

On all of these, make sure you call or e-mail me so you have an agent of your own when you make your first trip to the models. Those sales folks in the builder offices sure may seem nice but they’re not your friend and they represent the builder first and foremost, not you.

    If you go up in price and a little further west (and stay north of 10), you will find some very nice product that competes in price with the resale market. Relatively small premiums for new and good schools.  However, the specs are being absorbed rapidly in these subdivisions as the market turns.
