Who is going to the house auction in San Jose Convention Center?

I’m not sure if people noticed from yesterday’s post, but there is an auction at the San Jose McEnry Convention Center tomorrow (4/27) at 8:00am.

This is probably your last chance ever to buy into some parts of the Bay Area (not the Real Bay Area, but close) before you are priced out forever. Spring Bounce is in full effect, and then Summer Summit will come and blow you away. Followed by Fall Fiesta and Winter Wonderful, of course.

Are you going? Post a comment – maybe you can meet up with other Burbians.

Are you reading this on 4/27? What happened? How many dozens of houses did you buy?

    Didn’t go there, didn’t do that, didn’t get the T-shirt.

    Looks like everybody else is at the auction. When you come back, complete these two sentences:

    1. My favorite thing about burbed.com is:
    2. My least favorite thing about burbed.com is:

    My answers:

    1. The great descriptions of loser properties, and the snarky follow-on comments.
    2. The troll. I won’t say the username but it rhymes with “Seal Castrater.” An “ignore” button? Pretty please?

  3. Real Estater Says:

    My favorite thing about this site is, what else — the real Bay Area map!

    My least favorite thing about this site is the hypocrite who bought a house for himself, made a windfall, and then urges everyone not to be in the market!

    i’m not sure why everyone is hating on Real Estater, he seems like a pretty straight up guy to me.

  5. Crossroads Says:

    I still don’t understand why people call him a troll. He pretty much stays on topic.

    Most Favorite – the witty comments
    Least Favorite – the RE boosting by that seal neutering guy.

  7. Pralay Says:

    Most Favorite: Comment without any requirement of sign-in.
    Least Favorite: Can’t remember.

    BTW, I never heard Madhaus telling people not to buy home ever. All he said is that this is not a good time to buy.

  8. RealEstater Says:

    BTW everyone, notice how one guy got everyone into something unrelated to the topic of this thread? That fits the real definition of “trolling” if you look it up.

    Skipping the auction, but I come hear for the lulz and Seal Castrater adds mightily to them.
