Deciding to walk when you're this close to owning a home takes courage. Just settling is never a good idea. There are situations why walking away is a good idea. After all, buying a home is a huge investment. To realize you made a mistake before you close when there are no penalties is better than being obligated to pay back a 30-year Mortgage for a home you'll regret feeling it wasn't worth it. Don't worry about having to save face, put on a happy face and get back in the saddle again.
If you are willing to let the opportunity go away because deep down inside you know it isn't right it just might be the best thing you can do. A home purchase is not a shotgun purchase, it is a commitment. You're buying a home for you, not to please your real estate agent, other members of your family, friends, or neighbors who know you're moving. It is not a sign of weakness to change your mind. Everything you do in life teaches you lessons and the milestones we cross are different for everyone.
Keep in mind when the big Why comes up, you don't owe anyone who is not a party to the contract an explanation. There is a good reason why you made the decision you made and when you're ready, you'll be more prepared, ready, willing, and able.
