I have been looking for a house for apprx two months now. Did not know how hard this would be. I have lost a few good offers for underbidding. Now I know better. I am still searching for the bargains. They are still out there. Best advise I got so far from a Realtor (that speaking at the First time owners class) is: “dont fall in love with any one home” because there are so many out there that you can fall in love with the next one just as easily. But, the other message I am drawing from this is that it could also be difficult to get that great low-priced house due to the multiple offers, that you can be badly disappointed.
