Buying now in CAYes I have read everything and anything I can. Prices are going lower and now is not the time to buy. But we are going to start looking and offering 10-15% below asking price, we plan on staying there at least 10 years if not longer. That being said, has anyone had luck in CA with offers of 10% below asking? We are looking in the Modesto/Stockton area.February 18 2008 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
