How much I could afford, duhhh. LOL
All kidding aside, I would start by hiring a professional I have researched and met to establish a directed working relationship with. Buyer's have a right to be picky and deserve only the quality of professional they seek out. If you found your agent simply because they had a pulse and a key to the front door, then you get what you asked for.
Make sure you are asking your agent "what are you going to do for me if I make the commitment to hire you"? Most will not have a well thought out answer, because the average buyer does not know what to ask or what they deserve. Kind of like, you would not know to order a filet mignon if you only had hamburger.
Location, Environment, Lifestyle, Commute, Size, Features... these are all things that the buyer can figure out based on what they want. All of these items change periodically and can explain why you no longer want a house. But to protect yourself legally and elevate your experience at no additional money, hire an extraordinary Realtor.
