I had a buyer who had lost out on 4 homes, either cash buyers or being out bidded, then I mentioned to the seller that my client loves the home and it will meet their needs. They have a 4 year old son that has to go to a childrens school for the blind, where the bus would be able to pick him up and drop him off at this home location. The seller did have a cash offer which was thousands over my client's
offer and the seller was thoughtful enough to close with my buyers.
If your agent is not showing you houses constantly and making offers on those you like, you may want to find a more aggressive agent. Your offers have to be strong and attractive to the sellers. Don't waste money on inspections or appraisals before you have an executed contract, that's just nonsense. If you're financing, your agent should have a general idea of what to look for that may prevent a property from being eligible for financing, like code violations and illegal enclosures or additions, that can save you time and money in the long run.
Arm your self with patience and knowledge so you also know what to look for in a home, as this is going to be a major investment in your life and you'll most likely live there for at least 5 years or more, so it should definitely not be an impulse buy. If you need an experienced and aggressive agent on your side, please contact me and I'll be more than glad to help you though your journey.

Unfortunately, the market is not going to get any easier any time soon. Patience and knowing when to act when the opportunity presents itself will pay off eventually. Nothing worth attaining is easy to accomplish, so try to remind yourself of that the next time your are thinking about taking a break. My suggestion is that you find yourself a good Realtor that can help you accomplish your goal. A good buyer's agent can make all the difference. Good luck in your search!

I feel your pain, but this is the situation with today's market when you have lots of buyers compete for the same property. Just keep on trying and also your agent has to write a strong contract and offer to stand out above all others. Good luck and you can call me if you have any questions.
