Our neighbors house still hasn’t sold yet. I think it’s been up for sale since the end of September.
The other day I was in our back enclosed porch cleaning up the area so our puppy wouldn’t get into anything that might harm her and someone was seeing the house next door. The people stopped to talk on the porch and didn’t realize I was right next to them on my porch (the window in between is frosted) and I over heard them saying the house was too much of a fixer upper for them.
The house really does need work. The real estate agent originally had it listed at $349,000 but it looks like it’s been lowered to $333,000. Both prices are really good for our area. I’m fairly certain with the work we’ve done to our home we could list ours at close to one hundred thousand higher, but there home really is in bad shape inside.
Chris was talking to the owner the other day and he told Chris that mortgage companies won’t lend anyone money for the house because their oil tank is more than 15 years old. Hmmm so is ours but we have insurance. It makes me wonder if they don’t even have home insurance? Anyway, they are going to have the oil tank removed and install gas.
Still … their price is too high for their home. They’ve done absolutely nothing to fix it up at all.
It still looks like it was last decorated in the 60’s or 70’s and like nothing much has been done to it since then.
If they ever do manage to sell the house I hope we get good neighbors. That’s all I ask.
