IT'S A FEEDING FRENZY !!   Homebuyers can be likened to pirahnas right now when given so much coice, so much opportunity and the surplus of affordable housing right now.  BUT ARE THEY?  Not here in San Diego where the availablity of housing is dropping like flies!   Every home I've shown this wee...
