I'm heavily considering purchasing a townhouse in Fishhawk Ranch. I visited the development this past September and was extremely happy with the townhomes and the amenities that Fishhawk Ranch has to offer.

The two developers Standard Pacific and DR Horton are both building townhomes. I'm still up in the air as to which one suits me best, most likely Standard Pacific. What I'd like to know from others that have purchased in the Tampa area or Fishhawk Ranch is if I should pay the asking price or try to get the price reduced on new a construction. It is a buyers market and I think that I should at least attempt to ask for a price deduction. What's the worst they can say "NO".

What do you think?

Does anyone have any other comments about Fishhawk Ranch? All comments appreciated.

Jason

Every builder I've heard from lately is still offering huge buyer incentives even on new construction...including the two you mentioned above.

The only incentive that I'm aware of is $5000 towards closing if you use someone from their mortgage company for Standard Pacific and DR Horton says no money down (no way) and no closing costs.

Standard Pacific offered exclusive unadvertised pricing to Realtors and their clients but that one expired March 1...should have a new e-flyer shortly. And DR Horton has been offering higher broker commissions forever which could be used for buyer incentives. Several other builders have leap year specials occurring as well. Timing is important.
