I Sure Wish You Hadn’t Done That

It’s been a while since I’ve done any major buyer bashing and I sort of miss it. I know you like it too. Oh sure, you deny it now but I have the stats to prove how many of you read the posts dealing with stinky purchases. Have a look at these sorry fools who completely missed the mark and tell me you aren’t absolutely beside yourself with incredulous disbelief.

    Still hopin’ for a beach house under 1/2 mil, Carol? Keep bashin’, but livin’ in El Cajon becomes you!

    I have no grand illusions, but what does that have to do with the price of eggs in China? And I don’t live in El Cajon :)

    This is a great website and great blog, I just wanted to reach out and compliment your site and let you know that I work with a lot of real estate agents in San Diego. I am a mobile locksmith in business for 10 years and am available 24/7. Many of the other Realtors that I work with often give a locksmith job as a closing gift for their clients. Please let me know if I can ever help you with anything.

    I’m leaving this up because we like Movoto and want to share the love, but flooding our posts with no less than 8 shameless plugs is a bit much, eh?
