Even when trying to place my small, I have to make repeated attempts.....obviously nothing in the way, but still I have to mess with it to get it to place. I read here on the forums that there was some problem with the house anim (ghost house) not lining up right or something similar....could it just be the house preview or is house placement bugged or something?

I believe that these brown dirt patches usually interfere with house placements, so I'd recommend trying to place the house on a location without those brown dirt patches.
For example. This one guy, Mondain he was called, owned this whole Island. and right next to his main building, a Large Tower I managed to place a small marble building. A few days later he comes on and is like WTF??? how the hell did you manage that. I have been trying for months to do that. He pays me 500K right there and then for the building.
I walk away a happy man. He demolishes the building and trys to place something else. He cant. He tries and tries and cant even re place the small marble. I happen that way a few weeks later, see the spot, and place a small marble there (lol). He sees me a few days later and is like ok. I'll give you 2 million gold pieces, as long as you promise never to come back to this island and place any more buildings. Reason being he had run out of accounts to place houses on, and just didnt want this small marlbe spoiling his view haha. So even this guy who owned every house on his island, couldnt manage to place this one small marble where I had managed to place one twice!
If anyone has any more tips on placing or any info on the bug with the tile shifting of the preview image, Id greatly appreciate it.
Buy a small building deed. Go to the area you want to place your large brick, and check the whole area is clear and that there are no 'rogue' squares with some thing on it that might be stopping you from placing. if the small house places in the whole area that you want to place the large brick (pace it out)
House Placement Rules:
1) All ground around the -outside- of the foundation must not have anything impassable (rocks, trees, etc).
2) No impassable object or land may come in direct contact with any part of the house.
3) Five tiles from the front and back of the house must be completely clear of all other houses.
4) The foundation must rest flatly on a surface. Any bumps around the foundation are not allowed.
5) The Foundation may not reside over terrain which is viewed as a road.
6) There cannot be any items, creatures, NPC's, players, or corpses within the house area.
So I think a large brick is 14x14 so you need to pace out 24x16 and that is the area that needs to be free of obstructions. Check this whole area, placing your small house if need be, then redeeding and replacing in next area, until you are satisfied that a large brick should fit.
Just an idea
