    i’d make an offer, I agree with your realtor that it prob wont work but at least youll know.

    We got to the point in our home search where we just wanted it to be over and we probably overpaid a little.

    If you make an offer, the worst he can do is turn it down, and then you’re not really any further behind than if you didn’t make an offer at all. It’s worth a shot, right?

    I would make an offer.  It isn’t going to harm anything.  I would ask your Realtor when the best time would be.  Since you just talked to the builder, it might be best to wait for a little while.  I’m thinking a week, but that’s just my initial instinct.

    We bought an inventory home from a builder and paid 96% of the asking price which is what our realtor told us to expect to pay for a house that wasn’t new construction. We also got our refrigerator thrown in which was the only appliance not already included. We got a few other things thrown in as well but they were minimal. Our builder also paid our closing costs but that was on the table to begin with it wasn’t negotiated.

    If inventory is low, they don’t have incentive to budge. Supply and demand – low supply + high demand = higher prices.

    I think you could put in an official offer just to see what happens. Or you could keep saving money. This might not be the right time for you to buy.

    We are having the exact same inventory issues in the Bay Area, so I feel your pain!
