hippychic823 - hang in there. And listen to the universe, God, and your instincts!
The super short version of my house hunting.
#1 - Listing agent did not follow through with sellers. Sellers ended up dealing with me direct, then tried to pressure me with "multi-bid" situation, "someone will definitely be awarded the house contract today" stuff. I walked away. (That was October 2011, the house is still on the market - now listed at the price I was willing to pay.)
#2 - Sellers got into a tiff with their mortgage company. Three + months later, I was FINALLY able to get out of that one. (That was October 2011, ratified contract. The house is on the market for 15k ABOVE the asking price when I went under contract.)
#3 - Listing agents hard sell for buying distressed property to rent out. Guaranteed me that I would earn back (rental income) the cost of the property within one year. Promised! I asked for a piece of the strategy -- just something in writing, just one peice of the puzzle, not the whole thing -- never heard from them again.
The powers to be were definitely telling me that was not the right time to purchase. So I sit back in my little space, am thankful for what I have, and move on.
