    That is a good idea. I am fearful of abandonment and don't have the heart to run a horse through an auction which I think is how you have to deal with that.

    I agree with this. I've been a RE broker for 15 years and am dismayed at the part-timers and slackers who think it will be an easy few extra bucks. This is a huge disservice to the people they...
