There are many different communities in San Ramon you have Windemere, Gale Ranch and a few more homes left at Richmond American. In Danville you have Alamo Creek, Ponderosa Homes and Wendt Ranch which is almost complete and in Walnut Creek you have Paulson homes. This does not include townhomes or condos such as Mercer but only some single family homes. If you contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org woulld be happy to go into detail on each and help you narrow down your search. The prices are definately negotiable at this time but it depends on the builders and their motivation, based upon standing inventory, competition etc. but it is a great time to negotiate aggressively. A good example can be a new home around 2300 sq ft that can be brought from over 900k to 750k or a 3400 sq ft home that you can haggle down to 875K. Let me know if I can help. AJ Cohen
I worked for many years for builders in the area. Prices are very negotiable right now with many builders. We are seeing many houses where the buyers are backing out for whatever reason toward the end of the building process and the builders are making great deals on houses that are 'fully loaded' with upgrades.

MLS# 40424636, 40424621 - Walnut Heights (off San Miguel Rd., Walnut Creek)
Walnut Heights homes were built in 2007 and are builder owned, so I am not sure if these were previously owned properties or a project taken over and completed by a new contractor.
Those are a few single family new homes in Walnut Creek. An alternative is Vista Kelly Oaks off of Treat Blvd but those are in Concord. MLS#40319165 in Vista Kelly Oaks is listed at $899,950 and offers more than estimated 3500 SqFt living space, views, and 4 Beds/4.5 baths. In process is Walnut Creek Transit Village (at Pleasant Hill BART) which was supposed to be a mixed use Condo/Townhome/Retail lifestyle community but I have noticed a big rental sign there.
I have some recent public record information for Hawthorne by Brookefield in Windemere, San Ramon. Homes were selling for about $950K to $960K on average sized lots. The currently have about 14 lots on Kami Ct left and one available that is premium with about 17K SQFT across from Piccadilly Park.
Problem is that most of the new development does not show on the public records with sale information until it resold. So pricing is hard to come by, but regarding negotiability, you can expect to pay what comps in the area are selling for. Many of the builders have price slashed and have realigned with the market.
