My boyfriend and I are starting to look for our first home together. We'll be looking for a single family under $200k in the suburbs and I am hearing some unfortunate horror stories from Realtor websites, friends, and recent home buyers. Stories of how all we will be doing is seeing dream house after dream house snatched by CA cash buyers and how we are going to need to be prepared to be dropping everything at a moments notice to view homes, write and rewrite competitive sob story offers to get the sellers attention. I know everyone's experience is different but the recurring trends are making me nervous. We do not work at jobs that will be pleased to be letting us skip out to do house searching at the drop of a hat. So...what are some of your experiences? Can you do home buying on the weekends with the occasional weekday for paperwork? Is the market so competitive that its required to be available for viewings, paperwork, and decisions immediately?
