Can I bid on a bank-owned home at AUCTION.COM? Is it much safer than a trustee auction?

For those looking to buy in Willow Glen, do you prefer a 'vintage' home or one that's been built more recently?
Hi Julie,

Many of my buyers like the vintage homes with Character.

Kind regards,

If you flip homes, do you consider Cambrian a good investment area to do so?
