How Long Does New Home Construction in Rock Hammock, FL Take

If you have decided that you would rather build a home in Rock Hammock, FL rather than purchasing a previously-owned home, there may be many questions that you may have. Although the opportunity to design and build your own home may be more appealing than searching for new homes for sale in Hillsborough County, it will take longer to move in.

The average timeframe for your home to be built from scratch is around seven months, but it can take anywhere between six months to more than a year. How long it takes for your house to be move-in ready can change based on many factors: not having the appropriate permits, location and environment changes, design changes, labor shortage, and certain style homes can increase the wait time until you can finish your new home construction in Rock Hammock, FL.

Missing Permits

Certain permits need to be acquired before building can commence. A builder permit, electrical permit, and plumbing permit are some examples of the permits that your builder will need to have before you can start building your home. If your builder is slow with getting these permits or forgets one, you can find yourself waiting while they acquire the proper documentation for Hillsborough County.

Location, Location, Location

Where you are building your house can play a major factor in how long it will take for your new home construction to be finished. Soil issues, for example, can prolong how long it takes to build your house. Some bad types of soil include settlement, where the soil moves, causing the house to shift, and expansive soil, where the soil expands when wet and contracts when dry.

Moisture in your area can also be an issue when it comes to building your house. If the location you’re building your house on has a lot of moisture, it can affect the foundation, causing cracks in concrete, and hardwood or tile floors. These issues may result in more consideration on how to best build the house, which will push back your move-in date.

Unexpected Weather Conditions

Weather conditions can also put off the progress of new home construction in Hillsborough County. For example, horrible winds can make it dangerous for the builders to work, putting them back a week. Winder weather, rain, and wind are all weather conditions that can make you wish you had searched for new homes for sale in Rock Hammock, FL.

Your Design Changes

One of the biggest setbacks in building your house is the last-minute decisions you decide to make. Although you can make changes later in the building process, they may not always be simple changes. Changing the position of your fireplace or repositioning your rooms can set back the builders, taking longer for you to move in and costing you more money. However, if it’s worth it for you, you can still make those decisions to make your home perfect.

Labor Shortages

If your builder in Rock Hammock, FL does not have enough skilled workers, it may take longer for your house to be built. A labor shortage is something that neither you nor the builder can predict, so it may be an unexpected issue. Although your new house construction in Hillsborough County will get done, it will just take longer with fewer workers.

Style Matters

As you can imagine, it will take less time to build a small, one-story house than it would for a mansion; so, depending on the size of your house, it may take longer for the builders to create it. As well, how custom your house is will also affect how long it takes for your house to be finished. Moving around the floor plan of a model design can lengthen the amount of time it takes to move into your perfect home in Rock Hammock, FL.

While all of these factors can increase the time it takes to build your house, there are ways to shorten the building time: planning ahead, getting your mortgage pre-approved, and staying on top of your schedule.

Plan Ahead

If you know exactly what you want your new home construction to look like before meeting with your builders and making final decisions, you can decrease the amount of time it takes for your house to be finished. A lot of time that goes into creating your house before the building begins is creating the floor plan and giving the to-be homeowners time to make their choices. If you walk into the process knowing exactly what you want and you don’t make any last-minute decisions, your new home will be ready for you to move into before you know it.

Get Your Mortgage Pre-Approved

Getting your mortgage approved and determining your budget for your new home construction can take a surprising amount of time and if you don’t prepare, you may find yourself sitting around and waiting to take the next steps. You should get your mortgage pre-approved before working with your builders so you already have a good idea of how much money you can spend.

As well, if you have a list of must-have features for your house, you can use that list to determine which features are within your budget. That way, you can make quick decisions about what your house will look like and you can start building in Rock Hammock, FL quickly.

Stay On Top of Your Schedule

Falling behind schedule can have major consequences when it comes to getting your house finished on time. There are a lot of people that you will need to hire to get your new home construction in Rock Hammock, FL finished on time: electrician, plumber, inspectors, and more. If you stay on top of your schedule and ensure that everyone is doing their job on time, you can avoid any unnecessary interruptions in the building process.

Although it may take many long months to have a custom house built for you in Hillsborough County, it can be worth it to have a house that you will fall in love with. Many things can push back your building time, there are other ways to ensure that your house is finished on time.
