I want to buy a 1.1M house but really have a price cap in the $950K range. Any hope on getting them to come down?

Hey Robert,
Builders along with sellers in general are offering flexibility and incentives in this buyers market. Call me anytime and we can discuss the opportunites in this market place. (858) 354-9913

Yes, the prices are negotiable. Recently at Arrowood in Oceanside, final sales were over 10% off the asking prices and the builders were paying off the Mello Roos! Having a buyer's agent doesn't cost you anything, and can really be an asset. It may not work for this community since you already have registered without representation, but keep it in mind if you keep searching for new or resale homes.

Absolutely! See my answer to your other question. I worked for builders for 10 years before switching over to residential resales.
