BUT- beware of any sub or other contractor that is 50%-70% of everyone else. Something is wrong there- most likely they are not carrying all the necessary workmens compensation insurance, etc, etc. You have to verify all that stuff. That is how most contractors cut their bids. That, and lower quality workmanship or materials.
There's no magic...
If I can be of any help, please let me know. Thanks,
I am selling some new construction and when the buyers have a solid position then we definitely willing to negotiate. It really depends on what you are bringing to the table. If you do not have a home sale contingency then that carries a lot of weight for a seller. Best
Here in San Antonio, <u>some</u> builders will neogtiate on price or on incentives. It really depends. Some have told me they will negotiate some, others are upfront and say no.
Some of the incentives builders use may be paying your title policy, or offering to sod the whole yard, etc. for using their preferred lenders, and others have incentives that are flexible. For example, they may offer $10,000 on any inventory home to be spent your way. This could be to reduce the price OR pay towards your closing costs. You choose.
Custom builders....these guys usually know they are in competition, so be careful with the lowball. It's low for a reason...
Anyway, hope this helps! Happy hunting!
