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.

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

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?

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.
