Looking for, oh, I dunno, a summer McMansion in DeSoto or Frisco? Or a hideout apartment in Garland? Or maybe just a modest homestead in South Dallas? All that and more can be yours, yours and yours beginning next Monday, when Hudson & Marshall starts auctioning off foreclosed houses available for pennies, dimes and quarters on the dollars throughout the state.
The local sell-off takes place June 24 at the Westin Dallas Fort Worth Airport, which is located here; here's a catalog of what's up for bid. And here's a list of your other Texas auctions, should you find yourself needing a canal-lot home with a wine cellar in the Village of Tiki any time soon. --Robert Wilonsky
