@Songbird29:  If the houses are selling that you never got it see, it may be because the offer was already in place.  At least your time isn’t being wasted when a house won’t be available to you.

Good luck on finding your dream home!

Could you possibly consider new construction instead? Builders can sometimes offer some very good incentives (for example, I received 50 percent off of options valued at up to $30,000 when I built my townhouse years ago), especially if you are among the first to buy in a new development.

You sound like me when I was looking for a home! My problem was that I was attracted to homes that were move in ready and aesthetically pleasing. I had a hard time walking into a house that wasn’t my style and envisioning what it COULD be. Well after months of searching and being too picky, we ended up buying an older home in a nice neighborhood. We ended up pulling up the ugly carpet, refinishing the hardwood floors, removing the dated wallpaper, painting the walls, and changing the hardware on the cabinets, and made it into our perfect little home! It looks like an entirely different house, we got it under budget, and we couldn’t be happier! If you’re not finding what your looking for, maybe you could start searching for a house with potential and turn it into your dream home over time.
