But due to the lack of inventory and high buyer demand, builders are increasing their prices, and decreasing their incentives. Based on the fact that buyers are buying these homes, at these prices, then yes, they are priced "fairly".
I would definitely hire a Realtor as a Buyer's Agent who can help you navigate the home buying process -- even with new construction. The builder's sales rep is working for the builder, not YOU. An agent can help negotiate on price/incentives, and also attend all meetings with the builder, and be another set of eyes & ears during the construction process. They can advise on what upgrades are smart decisions (for resale down the road) and what upgrades are a waste of money. The builder won't tell you those things.

In my opinion, I feel this is priced correctly. I actually own a home in Meridian and this is an area that is showing a lot of growth due to businesses moving here and the Sky Ridge Medical Center.
If you would like to take a look at it, let me know. There are a few others as well in this area.
