    I don't mean to be a jerk, but I've been waiting seven years for this to happen, so I'm gonna brag.

    I just bought a $900,000 house on 7 acres 30 minutes from Boston for $196000.

    It was me, the auctioneer, and the lawyer. I was the first and only bid. The auctioneer was speechless. The lawyer offered me $600000 cash for the house.

    I looked like an idiot for the past seven years because I refused to buy a house. I rented an apartment for $725/month.

    My two mentors told me to wait. "Be patient", they said. " This is going to be a disaster." Well, they were right.

    This is only the beginning.

  3. Why didn't the lawyer just bid for the property? wats stopping him from bidding?

    Is this one of those government foreclosure sale thingy?
