I read somewhere that it was taking Centex in other states almost a year to build. This is our first home so we're rather excited.
When we were looking for a home, most builders said 4 - 6 months, but that was dependant on the home and how busy they were. We moved in Dec 2007 and we were the last home our builder built that year in this neighborhood - and they finished our house about 5 weeks ahead of schedule. But that was also the beginning of the slump and things were starting to slow down A LOT around Charlotte. They basically had nothing to do BUT build our home.
Brand new house at this time of year with things they way they are now, I would say six months. But the builder could tell you better what they can do.
