Hi all -
Our builder told us that they are starting to build our house! Yeah! :-)

He told me that it would take about 100 days or less from putting the footers in for a crawlspace to settlement (closing).

What has your experience has been? Have you seen the large production builders (Centex, KBHome, Ryan, etc.) build this fast? Do they usually keep to their schedules, or do you find they delay alot?

This builder seemed confident that they can adhere pretty closely to the planned schedule. Time will tell, I guess.

That sounds about right. With our house from the time they poured the slab to when they finished was roughly 3 months. I was actually hoping it would take longer because we are not moving for a couple more weeks and I already paid 2 mortgage payments already!

I wanted to know the same thing because I just bought a KB home. I was told it would take around 6 months, but they will not allow me to lock in my interest rate for 6 month lock. This leads me to believe that they might take longer.

I bought a KB home. I was first told it would take up to 6 months. Now it seems like it could be in three or 4 months.

Just curious to those who are having a house built. Just wondering how you handled selling your house while having a home built? How many months before your new house was completed did you put your house up?

I'm building a KB Home right now and we put our current home up for sale in California the same week we signed our contract.
We are hoping to have it sold by Labor day and we didn't want to miss the summer rush of buyers.
Plus, we certainly don't want to have to pay the next installment of property taxes come November!

We listed our house about 1 month after we went in to contract. Our home sold really quickly and we ended up living with our inlaws for 3 months until the new house was finished.
