Home under construction


Ocala New Construction Homes

Ocala is growing and we are building new construction homes in all sizes and price ranges. Since 2008 when the market crashed and many builders went out of business, Ocala/Marion County has sold a lot of short sales and foreclosures.  In 2016 builders started to build spec homes, short for speculative, where builders build on land they own, hoping that someone will buy the home.

In 2016 we closed 173 new construction homes.

2017 we closed 485 new construction homes.

2018 we closed 988 new construction homes.

In the first quarter of 2019 we have closed 241 new construction homes.

We have seen the new construction homes sell faster than they could be built, meaning buyers were putting contracts on the homes before they were completely built.  So far in 2019 I see the market stabilizing off and the prices are stabilizing. There are many builders that have spec homes built and ready for a new buyer.

When purchasing a new construction home you will need representation of a Realtor, to be able to help you understand your rights and show you what to look for in the builder’s contracts. Buckner Homes Realty Inc. has the experience and knowledge to help you.  We work with all builders.  If you want a custom builder - a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for the wishes of a specific client.
