Our neighbors finally sold their home a couple of months ago and they moved out this past Thursday and Friday. I really didn’t think they’d manage to sell their home since they had the price so high – very high considering they hadn’t done anything to the home and I’ve just found out that the kitchen doesn’t even have a stove! No wonder they were always using their deep fryer on their side of the enclosed back porch. Geez!
Anyway, the new neighbors came by on Saturday and we met them. Well, Chris talked to the husband a few times, and he and I both spoke with the wife. From what we can tell they seem like a really nice couple.
They’ve decided to do a bit of work around the home before they move in and don’t plan to fully move in until the beginning of July. We didn’t ask, but I suspect that they are currently living in an apartment. When we bought our house we kept our apartment for an extra month as well (cashed in on that first and last and as a result didn’t pay rent for that last month) as we did work around our home.
Apparently our area is quite hot in the Real Estate market. Our new neighbor told me that her agent and all their friends said this was really an up and coming area. Cool .. No wonder there are so many houses going up for sale and new people moving in so often lately! We might have to hang theater rope to keep the potential buyers at bay!
The new neighbor – the man – plays in a band so I’m sure he and Chris will end up getting together to jam. Both are guitar players.
As I said I only met the new lady of the house once, but she seemed very nice, down to earth and I have a feeling we’ll get along quite well.
