UrbanTurf Reader Asks: Will I Get a Lower Price on a Condo Before It Delivers?: Figure 1

In this week’s installment of UrbanTurf Reader Asks, a reader who has noticed a small condo building under construction in his neighborhood wonders if he can get a lower price on a unit if he buys before the building delivers.

There is a small condo building (row house conversion) under construction in my neighborhood that I am interested in. I don't believe the units are officially for sale yet, but there is signage on the building that includes sales contact info. I know the days of pre-sales are over, but if I reach out to the agents selling the building before it has delivered, do you think I can push for better pricing than if I waited until after it delivers?
