The average amount of time to build a new construction house is about 7 months, according to information from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 Survey of Construction. That sounds about right to us as well.

A fully custom site-built home can take anywhere from 8 to 14 months depending on location, demand, and other factors. For example, building in the North East US can take longer than the South East US due to weather challenges.

A fully custom home will generally take longer to complete than a semi-custom or modular home.

If you choose the semi-custom or modular route time and money can be saved. All you must do is find a nice property, select a home model you like, and hire a builder to complete your project. You might not get as much say in options beyond exterior colors, countertops, cabinets, and appliances; but you will generally enjoy a faster completion time on your brand-new house.
