Under construction homes are generally not completed and will not be available for purchase until sometime later. The buyer will have to wait on the property being finished before they can move in. This can be anywhere from six weeks to a year or more.

It may be possible that while you’re waiting, they may give you the option of renting the home from them, so you can get out of renting and into something that’s more permanent for you. But some areas are not guaranteed for rental (such as if the builders choose to sell their homes), so always check with the builder prior to signing a contract.

Most builders will give you an option of choosing whether or not you want to rent a home but it’s something that should definitely be considered because once it’s done, there is no chance of looking at it again.
