While doing a bit of research I found a prior cash sale from an individual to a well known lender (whose intials begin with WF) for a single parcel transfer. The county auditor 'conditions of sale' notes it as being a 'Special Master Sale'. Have I been looking at the computer to long? Has my head cold finally won? What the blazes does 'Special Master Sale' mean? This is Hamilton County in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio. Tom Fiehler, where are you when you're needed!
