When you want to buy a home the best place to start is to hire an EXCLUSIVE Buyer Agent, not just a Buyer's Agent. EBAs only work with homebuyers and there is never a conflict of interest that will jeopardize your negotiating position. I'm an EBA in the Dallas area and would be happy to assist you.
I've written a best selling book called Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You. It'll teach you how to buy a home and get a mortgage without getting ripped off. Follow the link below.
Best of luck!
The options available to you are directly related to the situation you are in.
You should not expose the personal details needed in a public forum.
What you will need to do is pick up the phone and call a Lake Highlands REALTOR and have a chat regarding your situation and your housing needs.
From your question, it is clear you are being persuaded by information that will prove to be not beneficial to you.
Kenneth advised correctly, "Time is the healer, but there are many with their hands out to collect a fee."
I will let the REALTOR you call to further explain the traps and benefits of the options you are considering and the ones of which you are unaware. There is no magic to fix things. YOu need to be commited, disiplined and focused on the real goals. In time, your efforts will reward you.
Best of success,

I am the owner/broker of one of Dallas' oldest and most successful Exclusive Buyer Agencies, HelpUBuy America. We charge a flat-fee for our services, so our fee is the same regardless of whether you buy a $150,000 home or a $500,000 home. This eliminates the conflict of interest that exists when you an agent is paid a commission based on the sales price of the home.
We've been protecting the rights of first-time homebuyers since 1995, and we'd love to assist you. I've also had a book published on Amazon called Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You. It'll be the best $6 you've ever spent.... more
