Spec Homes

For many developers and home owners alike, client specific goals and budgets may make the intensive involvement of a custom home design + build process unappealing.  This is why we are able to provide our clients with a variety of spec home designs to fit almost any lot and comply with most cities zoning and planning requirements.  Spec homes are also easier to cost out, meaning the client can be assured of a fixed-price turn-key home with a project schedule that can be much faster than a custom home project.

Home Owners:

Highlands Master Builders constructs spec homes based on proven design models. One would think our spec model homes are custom-built. They are easy and relatively inexpensive to build but are also easily customized to offer the best of both worlds. Our spec builds are move-in ready, a factor that’s hugely appealing in luxury markets where the is some home owners second, third or fourth home.

Innovative amenities like refrigerated medicine cabinets, built-n espresso makers, and features like an indoor pizza oven or a wireless HiFi system make your residence a true retreat where you can enjoy the finer things in life. The main appeal of Highlands Master Builder’s spec homes is that a house fit for the highest net worth individual could take two to three years to build from the ground up. We build spec homes designed and built to offer the same fine finishes we employ in our custom home division, but you don’t have to wait through years of construction dust to sit back and put your feet up.

Rest assured that all our spec homes are truly custom-built homes with immaculate attention to details. Highlands Master Builders ensures unparalleled style, quality, craftsmanship, and service.  The most important factors that have been the key to our success are our impeccable attention to detail and our honest open communication philosophy throughout the whole building process.


Property value is on the rise in Vancouver and so is land value. It’s becoming harder to find distressed homes to flip as prices for those have soared. Most Vancouverites aren’t interested in the long commute, and they want to buy in established areas, and yet Metro Vancouver’s housing stock is aging past its useful life.  But you already know this and see the opportunity, and this is why we have a number of spec house plans ready to fit almost any lot, with contemporary materials, finishes and colours that your potential buyers will love.

At Highlands Master Builders, we know as a developer you need the right team behind you. The designers matter. The interiors and finishes matter. It’s almost like you’re building a spec property with the mindset of someone who has significant wealth. We have high-end architects and builders that can make your plan a vision.  No matter what your overall project goal is, we can provide you with cost-effective construction managed by industry leading project management tools, enabling you to keep track of your investment from anywhere.

We have done many renovations in the past, but Highlands crew was outstanding. It is rare to find a construction company that has so much knowledge and experience and has the leadership to see a project through from the beginning to the end. They were always onsite, early in the morning. They were pleasant, polite and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We were actually sad when they left, as they were like family friends staying at our house!

If you want a great crew, outstanding workmanship, transparent and easy to understand billing this is THE company! We would hire Andrew and the guys back for another project any time. Thank you again for going the extra mile – we are very grateful.
