Well our neighbors finally did it. The other day I looked out side and there’s evidence that they got themselves a real estate agent because they now have a big For Sale sign on their lawn.
Yeahhhhhh! With any luck my Karaoke neighbors will move away and loud bad singing will be heard no more from the house next door.
I think I spotted the sign on Sunday or Monday, but so far I haven’t seen anyone going into the house for a viewing. That actually reminds me, I’ll have to look it up online (or talk to the neighbors) and see how much they are trying to sell it for. I think when they first told my husband in early August that they were going to put their house up for sale in September that they were going to ask for $275,000 which is kind of low for this neighborhood. Maybe they’ve raised the price and now it’s too high?
Instead of throwing out the things they don’t need they piled them in the backyard in front of their shed that’s attached to their garage. Why they didn’t just put in the shed I don’t know, but it makes their yard look trashy.
I’m of the opinion that if you really want to sell your house you make sure both the yard, exterior of the house and the interior all look as nice as possible. Of course I’ve never sold a home, but I sure did look at a lot of them before we decided to put an offer on this house. I know that the tidier a house looked the more interested I was – well if the basic structure and look of the house appealed to me.
