There were definitely times we thought about sacrificing certain things and as I said, location was a bit of the choice. But, we seriously thought about offering on homes closer to busy streets or much smaller (and cheaper). At the end of the day, we were able to hold out for a while and find a house we are really happy with. As of right now, I feel like not getting the 3 previous houses was the best thing. Although it was tough to go through the process. Good luck!!!
Yes, we remind our customers in situations like these to focus on the fact that one door closes another one opens. People are often able to relate this quote to their own personal lifes experiences. I sure you can also.
As difficult as it is to accept this disappointment , there will come a time when you will understand and truly accept why this one has not worked out for you.

Lynn911, this house was built in 1986, which is old for our area (Florida). It's also a unique floorplan for this area, with the second and third bedrooms upstairs (most homes in this area are ranch-style). I don't know how to find out the original builder. But actually, there IS another house for sale with the exact same floorplan. And it's a foreclosure, listed $45,000 less than the first one, and is actually in decent shape inside. However, it's also on a busy street (we have 2 small kids), with a smaller yard, and no back porch or patio. We can't decide if the house is worth it, being the floorplan that we love, even with the bad location (although it's still in the same school zone). Since everyone always says, "Location, location, location" it seems like an unwise investment...
I think there are many who could be a true love, and many homes that could be "the one". I do believe that certain homes "speak to you"... and when you find one that speaks to you, pay attention.
Another home will come along that will tug at your heartstrings, and you'll find that it may suit you even better that the one where you offer was rejected. Things have a way of working themselves out. Keep the faith.
