    @Rubbs:  we found that the houses we wanted were all getting bid-up in multiple bid situations.  For example, we bid over list price on a home that was $10k over our budget already. We got into a bidding war and backed out. A few months later we find out that the person who got the house actually paid $15k UNDER list price ($5k under our budget). The appraisal determined the actual sale price. We also found that a lot of houses that were on our budget or close to it were actually short sales.

    too many to count. Almost a year of active house-hunting and one house lost in a bidding war. But now, we are sooooo happy with the house we ended up buying and we are so happy we didnt settle for anything else.
