humble, self-depreciating, and damn good looking!

    Back to the OP - I'll disagree with 3 and 4.

    Appraisers need to appraise out at a number that will meet the loan, or else they won't get work from the banks. There were stories of this from before the bubble deflated the 1st time - not sure if it still goes on.

    To a credit worthy applicant, banks will lend as much as they think they can get away with. More money = more interest in their pockets. If I bought a house based on what I was preapproved for, I'd be in a McMansion without enough money to heat it. Even with regulation, it amazes me how much one is expected to spend on housing. Since most buy what they can finance, not what they can afford, its no wonder that prices have recovered as well as they have.

    @E-man. I wasn't waiting by design - I just kept getting outbid because once I put a value on something, I tend to stick to it. That and my wife is very selective (in a good way).

    I try and see the world as it is, not as I want it to be.

    Not being able to beat the competition, I got aggressive on a bank owned property and kept the competition at bay. The process was a min-soap opera, as my many posts from that time attest to, but it all worked out well in the end.
