When I try to figure out my own interactional failures I reverse the roles, ask what I would do if I were the other party. If you were the seller and willing to take $x for your home, would you take it from the guy that can close in a couple of days or from the guy that wants to you wait for an undetermined time until he lists his home and then finds a buyer?
It is not unrealistic to believe you can find a deal, it is unrealistic to think your position is the same as a buyer that can close this coming Friday.
The source of your dilemma is not the actions of the investors; it is your lack of action and the desire to work backwards. Hire a Realtor you trust and lay out a plan, good luck,

Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time
I answer questions about financing real estate based on my decades of experience dealing with mortgage underwriters. This answer is my personal opinion, has not been reviewed or approved by the company I work for. I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.

There are 8 important questions every buyer should ask an agent before letting them write an offer. I'll put a link to the questions, and the answers, in the web reference below.
I'd love to help you. Give me a call! Take care.

Call me! This is an easily remedied problem.
1) We put your home on the market. Any offer received is countered back with the clause that you are to find suitable housing prior to close and that the escrows will close simultaneously (also known as concurrently).
2) We start looking for your new home. I have access to homes immediately, so we will be all over new inventory as soon as it hits the market. (I am not a fan of people marketing their pre-MLS inventory, it has ethical problems written all over it, so be wary of anyone promising you pre-market access).
3) We write offer(s) on the houses you like, all contingent upon the successful sale of your current home.
It's a bit tricky, but luckily I have done this many times over and can confidently guide you through it. Another bonus is that I live, work, and know North County San Diego better than anyone else!

An excellent Buyer Agent will go to work to find the right property for you. Your Realtor will also advise you on how to handle the sale and purchase in a way that will be attractive to the seller.
Good Buyer Agents often have strong contacts with other Realtors and can find out about property before it is listed, and may also know about "pocket listings" in your area of choice. It's not uncommon for a Buyer Agent to look at For Sale By owner property for you as well. In my opinion this would be your best course of action!
I live in San Elijo Hills and know the inventory well ( cause there is practically nothing ou there)
You'll need a responsive and local agent that will be able to drop what they are doing to get your offer submitted before the one u like goes.
Call me to discuss further. I may have a buyer for your townhome depending on location etc.

There are many ways to be competitive in this market.
The place to begin the analysis is revealing how you are currently going about your home search.
Very often a potential buyer undermines their objective by:
1. Hiring a part timer
2. Hiring a rebater
3. Using the agent referred by the lender
4. Refusing to make a commitment to their agent
5. Using an agent instead of a REALTOR.
6. Piling on contingencies.(the 'must sell' is a tough but CAN be negated)
7. Making offers at the top of your purchase ability.
8. Attempting a DIY purchase.
When you fix the problem on YOUR side, here is what your REALTOR can do:
1. Plug you into the FIRST LOOK network
2. Introduce your buyer profile to the other 3 invisible markets
3. Network with active agents in the target area
4. Contact agents who have ripple contacts from previous 'like kind' sales
5. Create and make relevant the solutions your purchase offer contains
Of course I'm not going to provide detailed, actionable direction, after all this is a business, not a hobby. Now, what has your real estate professional advised regarding making your offers competitive?
By the way, most sellers DO provide the ciitzen a opportunity to buy FIRST, before an investor.
Clearly you need to change something. WHAT are you WILLING to change?
Best of success,
