I have been in this business for more than 20 years and have learned people start/ stop their homebuying search for a number of reasons as well as no reason at all.  When appropriate I ask questions.  I listen. I continue to learn.  Every day.

In my state? I have no idea... I work a very small portion of my state! I've not experienced that many situations where my clients regularly were outbid... and those who were keep looking till they find something. A motivated, serious buyer won't stop looking. All that being said, NC is still one of the top 5 moved-to states... so I don't think buyers are giving up.

Not giving up, but investor types are making better offers after the first couple...
Otherwise, there is not usually a battle, at least in my areas of the state.

Some buyers are so frustrated that they have given up. Others mistakenly have adopted the strategy of "waiting for prices to return to normal"...whatever that is supposed to mean.

Those who persevere can still become homeowners.

I've had buyers get frustrated.  Those that put buying off too long suffer the consequences, prices are up.  With no slowdown in sight, better to buy now and have the appreciation working for you than against you.

Of course not.

They still BELIEVE they will find a house two levels above what they can afferd. Of course the lack of success is the fault of the professionals in the business. But that does not explain the two FSBOS they also bombed on.

Time-holes tend to have incredible staying power.
