To answer a few if your questions, I'd love to talk about options. They are vast and many. Bottom line, what's most important to you, features or price? Location or a deal? Floor plan and amenities or living in a beautiful home that is exactly what you desire (usually cost more)?
Timing sometimes can be an incentive, other times not. Just have to get the offer written and start the negiotations. Give me a call please, and I'll fight to get you the best deal possible!

I would really causation you on the comment that you made of the home's location not being the best. As a Realtor the location is Key when you want to sell the home. Please contact a local Realtor for their professional advice so that you can make a good choice.
I wish you the best!
When you want to buy a home the best place to start is to hire an EXCLUSIVE Buyer Agent, not just a Buyer's Agent. EBAs only work with homebuyers and there is never a conflict of interest that will jeopardize your negotiating position. I can refer you to an EBA in your area, if you like.
I've written a best selling book called Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You. It'll teach you how to buy a home and get a mortgage without getting ripped off. Follow the link below.
Best of luck!
It is critical though that you look at all of your costs before you decide to go with their lender. I always recommend my clients check with at least 2 lenders so they can compare. It won't do you any good to save $20k on the home if the loan they put you in costs you $50k more than one you could have gotten elsewhere.
