I'm sorry for the difficulties you're having. I have 2 pieces of advice; be patient and keep your eyes open. If something better comes along, you are in a unique position to potentially take advantage of it. It may mean walking away from the work you've put into obtaining this house, but the end is uncertain and you have some options. By keeping your eyes open and perhaps investigating other opportunities, you may find something worth moving on to. If not, you can take added solace that this one is worth the wait.
I just thougth of a third piece of advice, watch your credit activity. Don't buy anything major like a car or pay anything late or you could end up waiting for nothing. Best of luck.
I had a sale last year where shortly prior to closing I received a non-sensical explanation of a problem with title. Fortunately I was able to get them to close the deal. It was only after closing I learned what the problem was, and it was entirely different than the information being conveyed prior to closing.
You might want to contact an attorney to review the title report and the prior foreclosure.
Good luck to you in any case,

Per my experience the local brokers that represent fannie mae foreclosed properties do an excellent job of making these deals close. Sometimes the situation is out of their hands, and all that you can do is to lay low and wait. Fannie mae is a huge bureaucracy that may at times seem as if it does care about the buyer's situation. And fannie mae doesn't care. It's a huge corporation living off the government's largesse, and you have to play by their rules.
So...just hang in there and listen to your brokers. Hopefully you have not one but two good ones. Just remember, unless the home closes neither agent will be paid...and getting paid is a pretty big incentive in the realty world. So rest assured they're doing what they can.
