Spec Home vs Tract Home : What’s the difference?

Building a home is an exciting process, but it can also be overwhelming, especially if you’re not familiar with the different types of home builds. To help you navigate this process, let’s take a closer look at the three main types of home builds: custom, track, and spec.

Custom Homes: A custom home is built according to your specific preferences and needs. You have complete control over the design, layout, and features of the home. A custom home is typically more expensive than other types of home builds, but it provides the most flexibility and customization options.

Tract Homes: A tract home is a pre-designed home that’s built on a large plot of land, often in a new development. These homes are built in a similar style with a limited number of floor plans to choose from. Tract homes are often more affordable than custom homes and are ideal for those who want a brand new home without the hassle of designing it themselves.

Spec Homes: A spec home is similar to a track home, but it’s built without a specific buyer in mind. These homes are built by a builder on a piece of land they own, and the builder decides on the design and features of the home. Spec homes can be a good option if you’re looking for a new home quickly, as they’re often move-in ready.
