Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? We can only hope so.
I purchased two homes in July and due to poor contractor work have been unable to finalize the "flips" until just a few days ago. During that time I have witnessed the market lag and fall, and try to climb and lag again.....hopefully my delays are part of a larger plan. Worst case scenario means rent until I am comfortable with an estimated selling price or sit on stagnant product waiting for the right buyer.
Have you had similar experiences? Where, when? Are you still in it?
Who's got predictions? When will the market rebound? Will it? Will it falter until we make history with a minority or female president? Will it pick up on it's own? What are the odds? Do we want to form a pool?
