To improve your chances on the next house, try to get a full loan comittment from your lender and don't let the listing price influence your offer price. If a house in underpriced you may need to offer more than list.

The most important aspect is the appraisal. If the property appraises then the transaction can proceed to closing.

Normally Realtors will not reveal the "sale" price until it has closed.
We are in a Seller's market right now so if you want to compete with the many, many investors paying ALL CASH it is crucial to get a full loan comittment with a lender that can close your sale FAST.
HomeBanc will issue a full lender committment letter. Many others will not. Also http://www.AimLoan.com says they can close as quickly as 10 days.
