Is that info public or is there an easy way of finding the information? I know they had it for a year, bought it for 132000 and it's been on the market for about 10 months. I would like to bid 105000 (110 tops) but its on the market at 135000 right now. Should I just wait til auction and not hassle with it until then (even though we really want the house)?
