If the home is priced competitively (look at comps w/Realtor) and you plan to keep the property for at least 4 years...then maybe a good deal for you. (Depending on builder incentives). However, take a Realtor with you.

Like Brett said your best bet is to bring a realtor with you, they will make sure you negotiate as much incentives and overall value in the price. New homes bought from builders can be an excellent buy as long as you get the most from the builder. They need you more than you need them. Also look at other new homes that were built in the last 2 years, these have already absorbed some of the losses and are on the MLS.

Thanks. But will it be a god decision to buy the condo/townhomes at the price while they quote, as the prices are still going down.

I'm in San Bernardino county. Builders here like to "give" upgrades and pay closing costs more than lowering the price. They also like for you to use their "in-house or perfered lenders". Lastly, they will honor a Realtor if one brings you to them. This is a great benifit to you, for a Realtor can aid you in the negotations
