The quick way to find a new home at Oakmont
Locating a move-in-ready, or inventory home, often is the fastest route to scoring a new custom Florida home at Oakmont.
Also known as spec homes, these are best-selling floor plans designed with neutral, classic elements inside and out. They reflect popular colors and interior styling in order to appeal to the largest possible number of potential customers.
Inventory homes are great options for buyers who don’t have the time for a full build or need to move quickly for job, family or personal reasons. They’re also a good fit if you and your household aren’t sure you’ll be long-term Gainesville residents. Buying an inventory home from one of Oakmont’s four preferred builders means its neutral, classic bones may hold the same appeal to future buyers as it did to you.
And, since builders build inventory homes to sell, you won’t find odd blue kitchen tile or super-bright or dark wall colors. But if you want that, there’s a sure way to get it.
This, of course, is building a new custom Florida home from scratch. And it’s the perfect solution for many buyers. particularly those people intending to reside in Oakmont (and Gainesville) for a while. Get everything you want from the start, right?
