I swear I'm going to stop giving them quotes. By the time a builder gets to the Landscape his tail is on the line and the budget is about maxed. A Realtor generally has to spend money out of their own pocket for things such as landscape. The Question is do you stop bidding knowing they freak out that you might make money off them or just keep bidding until one hits. I've just started bidding high, what the heck. Use the ole' "take away" car sales trick. "I'm sorry. You apparently can't afford this model"
