If you are considering purchasing a newly constructed home in a PUD, planned unit development it's unlikely that you'll be able to find a builder that is willing to discount their product. Since they ave a commitment to those people that have bought previously to not devalue their homes by discounting more recent construction. Many builders will offer other incentives to attract buyers without angering other owners. Lease backs, favorable interest rated, discounted or free upgrades etc. help new buyers by offering them more for less in this way.

We recommend that before making a commitment, you visit, collect information and stuty all of the builders offerings in your location. In this way you'll be able to compare the products and be prepared to negotiate based on your accurate knowledge background.

AND, you will find yourself in a much better position by working via your own personal agent, as opposed to the builder's sales representative.

Good luck,
