    You can haggle at any real estate - the owner just may not choose to accept it but its worth a try !

    Not in our estate - she wouldn't even consider a $5k reduction and was willing to let us walk away. Which we did, but then came back the next day and offered the full asking price We just had to have it. Still worn trying though!

    We were told in most new estates that the price is the price, and this was confirmed by our bank. There was zero negotiation on any aspects of our land contract (buying from large developer). But may as well try your luck!

    Oh and just a side note, if you are buying land that hasn't titled yet, take their estimated title date and add 4-8 months onto that date!
