How long would it take to complete homes from here ? [ Pics included]

Parents got a place coming up, visited the place, it is scheduled for the occupancy phase in November. Does this look like they can complete it by this November ?

Thanks,

No! Unless you parents bought a place that just sits on top of the land, like some of those fabricated cottage.

The actual construction of a house only takes so long, but it looks like there's nothing yet in the way of site servicing (hydro, sewer, gas, fibre). That's going to tighten the timeline for sure.

You posted pictures of dirt....not even dug up dirt...

Just the process to get the foundation in could take many many months (gas, water etc etc)....

tent city , you mean? Then yes.

land is not even staked out and surveyed at all. No roads / streets have been graded at all. You are definitely not looking at Nov 2018. If they move their butts in the next few weeks, then it is more like late Spring 2019 at best.

It takes the builder typically 4 months on the average to build the home.

You should see foundation at least by June/July

Townhome.
6 months is enough time to build a townhome, but there is no site prep, no roads, no services. That part worries me.

construction season is relatively short. You are particularly in May already and getting all the site prep & required infrastructure into the site will need another 3 months at least.

My last house went from a farm field to me moving in 6 months.
:O where was this? The fastest i've seen it go is 1.5 years and only 1 builder that does it, John Boddy. Their actual construction time is between 6-8 months TOPS if the land is serviced. Farm to a move in in 6 months HAS to be a record, at least in Canada - specifically GTA i've never seen anything under 1.5 years from the time you book to move in.

It is obviously not in GTA. It sounds more like tiny townships which the builder is doing couple of homes at a time.

My builder said 6 months from foundation being poured to occupancy. It's doable for sure, but I wouldn't count on it based on those pictures.
