As an Auctioneer I have the unique experience of digging through others things for a living. You would be surprised at the things people have tucked away.

Well, I got word today that I didn't get the listing on Alfred.  The seller's reason was that my evaluation of the list price for their home was too low.  I told them they needed to be around $130,000 or less.  They are being relocated, and acted like they wanted a quick sale...I thought the comp...
