Jason, You will need to negotitate with the seller. I know of a few people this has happened to recently, and the builder was happy to negotiate. After all, the reason they are selling the home for less $$$ is that there are less buyers, and they want to get them sold. "A bird in the hand"- you as a sure thing is better than you taking a walk! So, they will often lower the price- and/or give you more upgrades- whatever works for you.
