Building a House: How Long Does It Actually Take?

If you’ve never been involved in the house building process, then you might not know how long it can actually take, on average. But if you’re interested in buying a plot of land and building a home, this is important information to become aware of. When labor conditions are good and there are no supply chain issues, it’s possible to build a house in three to six months. However, currently, there’s an increased building demand, slow-downs in the supply chain, and labor shortages. This means that building a house will take longer. An owner-built home could take around a year, while a built-for-sale property might take around six months. For more guidance and advice on building a home, contact us today.

What are the limitations
on an inspection?

A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
