You can always negotiate and offer any price you want to, but the seller may reject the offer. As others have mentioned, you don't necessarily justify the reason for your low offer.

Ronald Yemmans II answered:

Zillow and Trulia get much of their information from public record, Multiple Listing Services and homeowners. School district boundaries can be changed as well and if a district grows additional schools could be built. All this can lead to conflicting information. It is best to contact the school district directly and provide them with the house address to determine what schools will service it.

Dan Tabit answered:
The sad truth is builder contracts are very favorable to them, and not the buyer. The only shot you have is to have the contract and timeline reviewed by an attorney who can show you the options you have, if any. Since each contract is different, the only reliable advice can come from someone who has read your contract. I'd encourage you to get this reviewed immediately since time is always a factor. ... more

I also agree that "rent to own" is a horrible option. Many renters do not realize that monthly rent amounts are much higher than a monthly amount based upon a mortgage. Before renting, I would suggest speaking with a lender to see if you qualify for a loan. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:
Right or do this all of the time. They likely feel that real photos of a property will make a better impression on buyers than an artist's rendering.

From your perspective and mine, this tactic is misleading and inappropriate and should be addressed. The fact that the photos used to advertise a property(after the fact) are knowingly representing a different property than the one actually being promoted might be something that should be brought to the attention of the local board of realtors. They would be able to assist you in best understanding your options relative to this....

Best wishes,
