There is little doubt that home buyers of today are fussier and more discriminating than ever with their choices. And one area where real estate developers expect to see that behavior growing is in the move-in ready segment. It may seem like move-in ready homes are a recent fad, but this surge in popularity is likely explained by the fact that buyers are now demanding greener homes or homes outfitted with more technology.

Before the dawn of move-in ready homes, buyers had been willing to buy real estate they could renovate or fix up by themselves. This fixer-upper trend is now slowly being replaced by the move-in ready trend, as fuelled by buyers who may have more modern needs and lifestyles. For these buyers, convenience is a must and they may have little tolerance for renovating and doing work, regardless if the real estate in question is a bargain.

If you’re in the market for a move-in ready home, you are strongly encouraged to take your time and do plenty of research before committing, simply because you now have more choices than ever before. Additionally, developers may have different definitions of what “move-in ready” means, so if you can’t wait to get started on your new life, it may be better to choose a home that’s already furnished—and not just with necessities like the kitchen sink, toilet, or refrigerator.

To help you with your search, you may also tap the services of a real estate agent as he or she will have a wider range of contacts to scout for your dream house. In the industry, a move-in ready house may also be called a turn-key house. As mentioned, the term can mean different things, so due diligence is a must. Once you have let your agent know that you’re interested in a move-in ready property, be strict and patient with your budget. This is because move-in ready homes usually receive multiple offers which can drive up its price.
