A pre-sale home is one that is available to purchase before it’s available to occupy. Buyers purchase these homes before construction starts or at any time during construction. If a buyer is going to pre-purchase a home, generally the project has a model home on-site for prospective buyers to view. Seeing the “final product” before it’s done gives the buyer confidence that they are getting what they want. Occasionally, if it’s also a production build, buyers can request changes to the layout, floor plan or design features that are offered.
