I was out showing a very low priced foreclosure in a not so popular neighborhood a few months ago at the request of a colleague who had set these appointments and could not make them due to an emergency. When I showed the house, the lady liked it, and as far as I know made an offer the next day. I did show her the view from the side window off the kitchen, and it did not bother her. However, this let me to consider the question for this blog post: How does the actions of a neighbor impact the sale of your listing?
I have found that it does not impact the sale, but more so the value of the sale. The actions of the neighbor with how they maintain their home is a reflection of the neighborhood to many buyers, and to others, it indicates they can get a deal on the house and it does not bother them. So I suppose it really depends on the view point of what is most important to the buyer, and whether or not they are going to personally live in the home.
