– Buyers are not only able to negotiate more contingencies but also negotiate down on the price
– Some builders are starting to offer credit toward buyer’s closing cost or interest rate buy downs- reach out if you would like to know which builders
– Sales for the month of October were down 35.5% from the same time last year
