Bargain hunters are drawn to ready-to-move-in homes since builders often dramatically drop prices on homes that are complete (or nearly complete) and lack buyers. Known as immediate-delivery homes, these models are sometimes priced below comparable homes in the same community.

The main difference between these homes and other new construction is that the options usually have been chosen by the builder. Buyers may find what looks like a higher price for the home actually includes thousands of dollars of upgrades such as hardwood floors, granite counters, a sunroom addition or a finished lower level.

Many of these homes are the former model home, which means they have decorative elements in addition to other upgrades.

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 sampling of immediate-delivery homes in the District, Maryland and Virginia were recently listed online by various builders and may not still be available at the time of publication.
