And that's the way it is...

Although it's annoying to hear again and again when you're feeling poorly about things, "there's a reason for everything" seems to be the only way to feel better. How interesting to discover personally that the current housing crisis has created a domino effect. If you have a home to sell, and you want to buy, you're at the mercy of frustrated realtors and insecure buyers. Even though you may have everything lined up, you may be stuck at an impasse if others' don't have their affairs in order.

So the deal is off. I feel for the couple who looked at my place with dreamy eyes. I feel bad for us, because we're back to square one.

Don't worry.. Buying a house and getting married is almost same in India. They said buying/selling a house is as hard as to get married.

Maybe, you will find a better buyer who deserve it better.

Don't worry about it and enjoy ur weekend!

It's hard waiting, waiting, waiting. I hope someone comes along to buy your house. I'll bet that when you sell your house, your dream home will still be there waiting for you.

I have always believed that everything that happens...happens for a reason. "Lo que sucede conviene."

This is a bad time for the housing market, financial institutions and the economy in general; however, it will improve. I have been reading your posts and I know how excited you were about purchasing that dream home you and El Jefe liked.

Patience is not one of my virtues, so I will not recommend it, but I would recommend for you to stay active and involved in your quest. Most importantly, allow yourself to be flexible. Many times I have had people tell me that what I wanted to achieve or acquire was impossible and yet the impossible became possible through diligence and determination on my part. Don't give up hope. What is meant to be "will" be...

I'm so disappointed for you! :( I'll hold back from reciting what you've already heard ... or I'll try. I won't even tell you to "keep your chin up." Just this: try to enjoy whatever time you have left in house you're in now and -- assuming that the monthly payments are less than the home you eventually want to move to -- think of all the down payment money you're squirreling away!
