I am also buying a new construction house, it should be completed very soon because i have my quality walk scheduled for the 22nd of May and Signing set for the 25th. I have only expereinced about a two week delay becasue there has been an increase in builidng in my area and the various trades were hard to initially lock down but once they were locked in everything has been on schedule. My most recent check on the house last friday showed just how close they are, just need fixtures and flooring and cleaning and it will be complete. I have found that there has been no stress with building a home becasue the builder has kept me in the loop and made sure that i know and understand what is going on. I am almost at the end of my expereince but i can safely state that when i buy another house it will be new construction because of the ease of purchase and professionalism that i have seen duirng my first home buying experience.

I'm under contract for new construction. I've got the rest of the downpayment due by the end of this month and still waiting on the last few credit-related flakes to settle (SL consolidation and CC balances to update). I will apply in mid-June and hopefully start the build soon thereafter. I've got vacation approved the first week of October, so I've made it clear to the builder that there is a hard deadline. None of this "delay" nonsense.
We have already bought paint and some new furniture. Once the app is in, I'll start picking up the light fixtures and such as time goes on so we'll be ready to blitz it in October!

I'm also buying a new construction. I have signed the sale contract, put the deposit down, and clear UW back in April. I'm just waiting for the building to start. It is supposed to start end of the month or beginning of next month. It's my first house, and I'll be it's first owner. I'm very excited and anxious. I'm sure I'm annoying the sales agent. I call and email for updates at least once a week.

LOL Thankful, hope it works out for you! I have had to change my "carved in stone" vacation twice.
Our house was supposed to be ready early April, then late April, then mid May, closing now scheduled for June 7th. The builder has been great, though, and I'm not mad. "Stuff" just happens! Too much moisture in subfloor due to rainy weather, one cabinet came in wrong, etc. When I threw a minor hissy fit at the last delay, builder said "Look, do you want us to just slap it together, or do you want it done correctly?" Okay, deep breaths! I have to say, other than my own impatience, it has been a wonderful experience. Would do it again in a heartbeat. (But I'm never gonna move again...that's a whole 'nother nightmare)
