YABU about auctions.

YANBU about your mother.

Why did you tell her? There's your first mistake.

And surely if she had commiserated that the house you failed to get was a pile of shite you'd have been more upset that she was questioning your judgement and taste?

Seems to me there's no pleasing people sometimes.

Sorry, you lost the house you had set your heart on. It is a shame that, with your mother being so wealthy, she is not giving you a helping hand and that she is totally lacking in empathy. But auctions are a public meeting to which anyone can go - otherwise how on earth would they function?

Don't tell her about the next one you're going to. Then she can't show up.

If she has "about 10 properties" then maybe she has more of a detachment towards buying/selling property than you do, and feels there will always be another one along soon. Maybe she didn't realise that saying it was a lovely property would upset you - it was just a fact.
