Because they can? We have a couple that has been "interested" in our home for a while. Our realtor has followed up twice (about once a week), and they're still "interested" and want to make an offer but they have to submit some VA paperwork for their VA loan. Are the just stringing us along or are they actually going to buy? Does it really take that long to get approval for a VA loan? I thought it was just like any other loan. I just want to move on to really looking for our next house and not have to worry about this one selling any more!

I know part of the reason they are dragging their feet because they CAN. We have had lots of showings but no other offers as of yet.

see, I had written it off that they were not interested, but when my RE agent followed up again, he assured me that they are still "very interested" and that this house is one of their top choices. I guess we will just have to keep waiting, but we have already moved and I'm getting antsy with 2 kids in a 2 bedroom apartment.

Some people are just very deliberate.
You never stop marketing and selling just because someone is "interested." They have to at least try to go to contract to prove they are really "interested."

Had those last month. They decided to buy in a higher range. Like, not love. No offers? Then pretend it means nothing un til it is an offer.

My thought is, what would be your plan if they decide that they are no longer interested?

In a buyers' market, buyers are jerks.
When we sold our house in a STRONG buyers' market, we heard all kinds of "interested" from our agent.
We ignored it as best we could.
Money talks and b--lsh_t walks.

Agreed davebarnes.

headingtoDenver, our plan either way is to live in this 2 br apartment until our house sells or at least is under contract, and THEN make an offer on a new house. When we moved an hour 1/2 away to take new jobs, this was assumed that this is what we would do. We signed a 6 month lease which expires in October. We can extend month to month if we don't sell the house. If it REALLY doens't sell then we will rent it and rent a bigger place here, but I'd rather be able to buy another house.
