It looks like we’ll have new neighbors soon. Much sooner than I thought we would.
The house next door … you know, the one that the home owners son has been renting out for the last year to a series of awful people? Yeah, that one … they put it up for sale about a three weeks ago and amazingly it’s been sold.
I personally thought the price they were asking was too high for the house. It was low for my area … about a hundred thousand dollars lower than what most houses in my area are selling for … but since the house hasn’t ever had any renovations done on it and I think it needs a new furnace, air conditioner and generally a lot of work the price, to me at least, was about 50,000 higher than I thought it should have been.
Of course I have no idea how much it actually sold for. Perhaps they accepted a bid that was a lot lower than the asking price.
I also don’t know who bought the house or when they’ll be moving in. There was a man at the house on Thursday that must have had serious interest in it as I believe he had an inspection done. They were at the house for about three hours … but when the house didn’t have a sold sign up by that evening or even the next day I thought that if he made a bid at all it wasn’t accepted. Who knows … maybe they went back and forth with bids all weekend until they finally came to a deal on Monday (when the sold sign went up).
I’m just hoping that whoever moves in 1. doesn’t turn around and rent the house out to bad people again and 2. turns out to be a decent neighbor. My definition of a decent neighbor is someone who will say hi or at least be polite when you see them outside their house (especially important since we’ll have to take turns using our shared tiny one car driveway) and who is fairly quite (since our houses are so very close together). I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
Ok, gotta go and find something to eat that won’t bother my stomach. Geez it’s like I took a handful of the best diet pills on the market! I’m starving yet don’t really feel like eating as I know I’ll be in pain after I eat – thanks to my Crohn’s disease that’s activated again. See the post below for more on that if you’re interested.
