EVERYTHING IS NEGOTIABLE!
I myself have gotten incentives from developers like Toll Brothers and The Clarett Group. Negotiating price with developers at times can be like pulling teeth, it's tough, but it can be done. On prime, new properties, even harder.
You see alot of incentives come out when sales begin to slow down, like in August. New home builders will give incentives like a term of free maintenence, tax breaks or pay closing costs. I myself have gotten bonuses for putting deals into contract when sales got low for some developers.
It's always good to ask if there are any incentives in place...
It can save you some money!
