Going Once, Going Twice...

A slightly goofy "personal finance" story on Jim "Mad Money" Cramer's TheStreet.com caught my eye this afternoon. It's about people who supposedly buy property online, sight-unseen. The author doesn't cite anyone who's actually done this. The only people he quotes are a real estate agent warning of the danger and a lawyer also warning of the danger.

But still, it got me thinking: Are there any decent golf homes for sale on eBay and the like? Take a gander.

I like the look of this place in San Diego (pictured), with a minimum bid of $435,900. Just remember, as TheStreet.com helpfully points out, "buying a house is much different than getting a new pair of slacks."
