Stop giving away information. Once an agent hears what you do, not all, they automatically see someone who wants to tie up property and therefore delay a payday for them. You can also put in the contract that you are willing to give the ernest deposit, which is to be held at your title company, therefore giving you more control. I would also suggest you to do your search on title companies that are familiar with double closing/creative deals and are willing to hold your check uncashed, until closing.
