New construction is different than buying a previously owned home as far as pricing. Sometimes builders are willing to take less, but generally only if it has been on the market for longer than they want. However, many builders today are paying closing costs, which can save you thousands of dollars. The price you pay for a home is not necessarily the most important consideration. If a builder will pay your closing costs, you will not have so much cash to come out of your pocket at closing. I would advise that you not write an offer until you have considered these options, because once your offer is accepted, you cannot change it. I would be happy to help you make these choices where they will come out in your best interest.. Another option is to buy a home in the same neighborhood that is only a year or so older. Many of this type of home will sell for less than the owner paid for it. Please feel free to call me or e-mail me if I can help.
