A Predictable Move-in Date

One significant advantage of a move-in ready home is that you get to choose your move-in date. Whether you’re relocating from across town or out of state, planning your move-in is as easy as scheduling the day.

A Walk Through

Unlike buying a home off a plan, with a move-in ready home you see exactly what you’re getting because you can physically walk right through it. You can enjoy each room, experience each space, and truly know that it’s right for you. You can start arranging furniture in your mind from your first visit and get a head start on making your cozy home a reality!

Saved Time

With a quick move-in home, you save time on construction. The time required to build a new construction home can be anywhere from six to twelve months. When you select a move-in ready home at Pecan Square, you eliminate months of waiting before you can take occupancy. Some quick move-in homes are nearly complete and others are ready now. You can make your move as soon as you’re ready!

Curated Design Options

For those who don’t love staring at color swatches and comparing fixtures, a move-in ready home is a relief: many of the design selections have been made for you by the builders team of professional designers. Though your move-in ready home may be completed or nearly so, it’s never too late to add upgrades and other customizations. Examples include adding a standalone shower, an extra fireplace, or changing materials and/or colors for your kitchen or exterior.

Less Stress

While building a new home is exciting, there are many choices to make: everything from exterior materials to light fixtures to cabinet colors and much more. With move-in ready homes, there are far fewer decisions to make and fewer things that can go wrong. It’s a much smoother, more stress-free process than the conventional homebuying journey.


Much like car dealers do for cars that have been on the lot for a while, home builders are sometimes able to offer special incentives and discounts on move-in ready homes. Even if the home is still being finished, the materials have already been purchased and the pricing is locked in. You might just snag a bargain!
