The best negotiating tip I could offer would be to get yourself an agent. Negotiate it with the builder to include his/her paying a buyer agents' commission and then find a good local full-time agent who has experience with new construction.
There is no rule of thumb on how much to ask off a list price. As agents, we base our offers on comparable sales. So, you'll need that information in order to base an offer. Many times builders will not even negotiate on their asking price, or they will give you an ""extra"" included in the price. A local agent should know what the builder does generally when selling their properties.
Good luck!

As someone who is on disability income /Social security income, Your child Social security income and your social security can be added together and gross up 25% to qualify for a mortgage.

Not sure what property you're referring to with no link or address. But...if you're an agent, can't you look it up in your MLS? You know the listings here on Trulia aren't very accurate, right?? Especially the so called "foreclosure" and "pre-foreclosure" listings?! If it's not in your MLS, it's likely not available for sale yet. ... more

Villebois is a great neighborhood in Wilsonville! I have sold 8 homes there the last 2 years. There are no existing homes in that price range and no new construction currently but that changes frequently as they develop new lots. There are new construction Townhouses in that price range and there is 1 stand alone model that can fit in that price range with minimal upgrades. $275K is a better price range to have more available options. HOA dues will vary from $85/mo to $170/mo for those models.

This an Investors market and finding a good renter likely won't be a challenge. You could expect to pay 7-12% of monthly rent for a good Property Management company.

If you would like further information, I could certainly keep you informed as new inventory comes on the available.

Good luck!

I apologise , I am not a Broker or in the Real Estate business, however, after reading your question I had to laugh and put my two cents in. I assume you were looking at the property on Faubion Loop Road as that is where your question appeared.
I laughed because you wondered if this was a good place for a "Homesteading" experience and mentioned that you might like to do a ":B&B type of thing.
You see my last name is "Faubion" my Grandfather and Grandmother were the Faubion that the township or community and the road were named for. My Grandfather built a homestead that still stands and is (I believe) currently lived in. My Grandparents had what could be referred to as a Bed and Breakfast there at their home that served as a nice resting place for travelers back in the earliest years of life on the Mountain. My father grew up in that house and would tell us how well the business served the family and the community. My Grandmother made her famous Huckleberry pies and Grandpa was a well known highly skilled hunter therefore they served fresh Mountain venison and other wild meats, stews homemade bread and pastries. . They called the place La Casa Monte which is Spanish for "The House on the Mountain" Funny though my Grandparents were french not spanish at all! LOL You can read more about it at ::
I hope you do not mind this glance at the past history of the area. Good luck, it is a beautiful spot, I wish I could live on the mountain again! Anzy Faubion

A good idea might be to place a local ad in the neighborhood or community newspaper stating that you have qualified buyers and their specific needs.
