Can I bid on a bank-owned home at AUCTION.COM? Is it much safer than a trustee auction?
In my opinion Auction.com is not a reliable or user friendly way to buy distressed properties. Plus if you are the "winning" bidder they charge you a 5% sales commission. What a deal!

Is the North San Jose area 'up and coming' with restaurants, shopping and entertainment or do you feel it is behind the times?
Convenient to call it home since dual income workers need a mid-point to call it home.
The downside is traffic on the weekends is a pain.

If you flip homes, do you consider Cambrian a good investment area to do so?
Difficult to find similar vintage homes for appraisal. Most lenders want sold data within 0.5 mile distance. If you build a 5 br, 4bath >2500 sf ....very hard to come with a value.
