Don’t Wait Another Minute—Now is the Time to Buy

December 16, 2021

If your New Year Plan has moving into a new home as a top priority, then you should plan to purchase well before the spring housing market. The typical build timeline of new construction homes has increased due to the supply chain disruption and labor shortages. The National Association of Home Builders predicts the challenges facing the industry will continue throughout 2022. Planning for a 2022 move-in date means purchasing in January or February.  

Several of Norfolk Home’s communities or current phases are nearing completion with a handful of available homesites and 2022 quick move-in homes. Quick move-in homes or “speculative”  homes are houses that builders start without having a buyer contract. These homes are available for purchase and allow buyers a quicker move-in date than starting the process from homesite selection. Development of new phases and communities will not be available until mid to late 2022 which means homes will not be ready for move-in until 2023. Review our communities to determine which community, home design and homesite fits into your 2022 New Year Plan.

My husband and I are building our first home with Norfolk Homes in the Mystic Ridge community. We have had nothing but an amazing experience with Marisa and the rest of the Norfolk team. We started the entire process in December 2020 not knowing what to expect. Despite being in the middle of a global pandemic, we are so happy we've made the decision to trust Marisa (and Ralph!) to make our custom home dreams come true! We understood going in, that with COVID-19, materials and labor were going to be hard to come by, but Ralph has been working very hard to ensure our house will be built quickly and correctly within our realistic timeframe. We cannot wait to move in and in the meantime are telling all of our friends to build a home in our new neighborhood.
