Move-in Ready Homes in Port St Lucie Florida

Move-in ready homes in Port St Lucie, Florida, are available from the upper 300s to over 1 million.

New construction home builders will use the term “move-in ready” or “quick move” to refer to homes that are at completion or within 60-90 days of being finished. The homebuyer has no design choice left in the new construction process and buys the home to customize it later.

Real estate agents and for-sale-by-owners will use the term “move-in ready” to indicate you can move into a resale home without much repair or remodeling necessary. For example, a home that was renovated from the 1980s time capsule to today’s modern taste, including a new roof, might be marketed as “move-in ready.”

What Do Move-In Ready Homes Mean?

“Move-in ready” homes means different things to different people, but in general, it refers to a home you can move into without the need to make any significant cosmetic updates, or make any repairs to systems such as roofing, plumbing, or electrical.

This term can apply to home resales or new home construction when you search for a home to buy.


As real estate investors, we have modernized resale homes with new flooring, roofs, and fresh paint. Other homes we modernized got new air conditioners, doors, and windows. We once renovated a home with knob-tube wiring and upgraded it all to current electrical codes. We described these renovated homes as move-in ready homes because the incoming buyer would not need to spend thousands of dollars on upgrades. These are not fixer-uppers or handyman specials.

If you are looking for a move-in ready resale home that has been renovated, remodeled, or flipped, there is no “list” of such homes to choose from. As you browse pictures at the online portal and work with your local real estate agent, you’ll find homes that meet such move-in criteria, even if it is not described as move-in ready.

New home builders will also use the term “move-in” or “quick-move” homes to describe homes they have built and are near completion. These are sometimes called “spec homes.” These quick-move-in homes are ready for occupancy in less than 90 days typically if they are not already finished.

A quick move-in home provides you with a faster timeline to move in because the building process has already begun, or may even be complete.

Before Choosing New Construction Move-in Ready Homes

When you meet with us to discuss buying a new construction move-in-ready home, we’ll ask you a couple of questions to help you find the right option:

  1. Price Point
  2. Homeowners Association
  3. Timing

Your answer to these questions will narrow down the list of move-in homes to choose from.

For example, here in 2023, your home-buying budget is up to $450,000. That can get you a home inside a Home Owners Association, or on a scattered vacant lot in the city of Port St Lucie.

Or, as a different example, your home-buying budget is $650,000. That can get you more into a Home Owners Association that one or two builders are building out. We have oceanfront available move-in ready at over $3 million.

Timing will be within a matter of weeks or a few months. Move-in ready is a relative term in that way. We’ve seen homes marketed as “move-in ready” with delivery 30-60 days away from completion but will be ready by the time you have your financing in place.

Where do I Find Move-In Ready New Construction Homes in Port St Lucie?
