Hundreds of people looking for a great deal.

"And we got one, just got one, 14 acres for $7,500." Steve Griffin and his wife were looking for some land so they could build their retirement home.

"We had a price, we stuck with it and we got it," Griffin said.

And after all the fast paced action, Griffin can now relax. "This is for me and my wife to kick back and have a good time."

With a simple hand raise, or nod of the head, bidders pick their price. The Tucson Diocese auctioned off 85 properties raising money to pay off victims of sexual abuse.

"Been a catholic all my life, born and raised and thought it'd be great to get a good deal and help out the situation we have here," Griffin said.
