My PM just answered a few questions that I had about my home construction and I actually got quite a shock. Specifically I questioned what the timeline looked like for my home. His reply? "Looks like we are on track for a March 5th pre settlement date" WHAT?! I should have known but I did not know we were so close! So yes my house looks like its moving fast because it is.
I will note that there are a few things they will do after settlement because we are a winter build. Things like painting my front door and regrading and seeding my lot. In addition, they still need to plant that buffer of trees. I also suspect they will have to repour my driveway. The asphalt is really lumpy and bumpy. But still- that date is SO close!
He also answered my question about those day glo "sold" signs in my windows. It helps let potential buyers know that the home is sold and it is not a "spec" house. which is a home built without a contract in place. Makes sense, but can we put a big "This belongs to......." sign in the window instead? No? Sigh.
