Valley couple's last-minute eBay bid earns them a CBH Home

House sells online for $150,190, making builder as well as buyers happy.

Article in the Statesman this morning by Joe Estrella.

Curtis Hardy and his fiancee, Stephanie Kiesig, thought they would never be able to afford the home they had fallen in love with in the Tomorrow subdivision in Kuna last year.

Priced at $180,000, the 1,339-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home was beyond the couple's price range. That changed, however, when the very same house turned up on eBay as one of five homes builder Corey Barton was auctioning off.
