Hello S- I guess I'm confused as well regarding what you're asking. Are you trying to have a new home built for you? Trying to see if you can get some contractor bids lower? If that's the case, Yes- most contractors are looking for work and will do stuff at close to cost just to keep busy and the truck on the road.
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,
Ken L.
