- The Washington Times - Friday, May 8, 2009

Immediate-delivery or ready-to-move-in homes appeal to homebuyers who are relocating to the Washington area and need to find a home quickly, or those who have sold a home and need to move out by the settlement date.

Sometimes buyers who are not in a rush find these homes appealing because they may get a bargain price. Others may simply prefer to have all the optional features in place before buying.

Most immediate-delivery homes are either complete or within 30 days of completion, which means flooring, cabinet and counter choices have usually been made.

Some of these homes include extra features such as a deck or a fireplace in the price of the home. In other cases, the model home is for sale, which means that buyers can enjoy decorative elements such as window treatments along with an array of additional features.

Immediate-delivery homes can be found by searching the Web sites of individual builders or at the sales offices of communities under development.

The following immediate-delivery condominium homes in the District, Maryland and Virginia were recently listed online by various builders and may or may not still be available.
