|I also peek out my blinds like I'm the president of neighborhood watch!|
Earlier this week I called and they were out running around. I called back again and they were eating dinner. When Nan called me back I had no idea he was still there and I began talking about the people across the street moving. Their house has been on the market for gosh, close to 2 months now! There used to be people in and out of the house for viewings, but slowly the numbers dwindled. Naturally, being the gossipy gal that I am I talked to Nan about how I was sure they were asking too much, or the back yard must be as awful as the front was before they gave it some good curb appeal!
Low and behold the boy she babysat asked what the address was and looked it up! He then e-mailed me a link and we talked about the pictures of the house they'd posted and how I'd change our house to look slightly more like this or that in theirs if we owned it. We talked about how they were easily asking for $60,000 more than I would pay for the house even though they are obviously trying to make the most of their investment!
Then he began looking at all the houses on the street on some website where he could tell when each one was sold and how much it sold for! We talked about how we would or would not have paid that for the various homes on the block. We talked about the cute one down the end of the street for sale at a reasonable price that has been on the market since we began renting here- a year and a half ago!
Lord help us- we gossiped about them all! So there you have it folks: I'm the creepy neighbor who has a little James Bond computer whiz kid in my corner an we're finding out about your house!
