For some buyers, finding a home they can move into within 30 to 60 days is a priority. This may be because they have sold their existing home and now need to move on, or they may have a rental lease ending or are relocating to the Washington area and need to be settled in order to start work.

In each of these scenarios, a solution may be to search for a new home that is move-in ready. Builders advertise these homes as “quick move-in,” “immediate delivery” or “move-in ready” homes, meaning that they are complete or nearly complete so buyers can expect a fast turnaround once they qualify for the purchase.

Sometimes these homes are available because a contract has fallen through, but most often the homes are either the model home or one of the few remaining homes in a development that the builder is ready to complete.

Immediate-delivery homes may sometimes be priced lower than others in the development because the builder is eager to sell and move onto another community, but many times they are priced higher because optional upgrades have already been added to the residence.

Buyers wanting the experience of choosing individualized options may want to avoid immediate-delivery homes because, most often, these homes have already been completed with flooring, cabinet and counter choices. Occasionally the homes will have a few available choices still to be made.

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

The following immediate-delivery homes in Arlington and Fairfax counties and the city of Alexandria were listed on the Web sites of various builders and may or may not still be available at the time of publication. Town homes, condominiums and single-family homes are all available as immediate deliveries.
