Who will wind up with a bargain and who gets sucked into a money pit? It's a different kind of battlefield where armor is a cell phone and fighting strategy sometimes is just a hunch. The answer to just who will be the ultimate victor lies behind the front door because only after the house has been bought does the buyer get to see inside... and sometimes it ain't pretty.
