I now understand why Bobby was acting so strangely the last 6 months: his homes were dropping in value.
It's easy enough to find out the truth. Do a google search on his name and you will see 3 parcel links that he owns. Each one has dropped in value by 5 to 10k since he bought them.
Poor, crazy, deluded Bobby. Putting all your investment eggs in one basket is never a good idea.
