Should you buy a leftover listing?

By Marcie Geffner

Every homebuyer has a dream house: the one that offers the perfect combination of location, size, condition and price.

These days, it's entirely likely that dream house exists, but it isn't on the market because the supply of for-sale homes in many areas is smaller than normal.

Sit on the fence or jump off?
So should you wait for the home you really want? Or should you buy a home that's not quite right, but might be good enough and is actually for sale at a price you can afford?

The answer isn't obvious.
