That was more than $100,000 over lender Bank of America’s initial bid of $158,529.37. Michael and Leann Copeland borrowed $255,200 on the home in July of 2003. The El Paso County Assessor values the property at $339,895.

Equity Trust Company custodian FBO Thomas H. Beeson IRA purchased a 2,104-square foot module home built in 2000 at 14965 Pamela Way in Peyton (80831) for $80,050.
