Burlingame help or hurt the sale of your home?

Original content by Amanda Christiansen

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood

A beautiful day for a neighbor

Would you be mine?

Could you be mine?

Please won’t you be my neighbor?

In Mr. Roger’s neighborhood all the neighbors are good right?  Not so much with some of the neighbors we have encountered with our listings and homes we have shown to our buyers.

I wonder what Mr. Rogers would think about being neighbors with:

Crappy back yard guy.  You know, the guy that never mows his back yard, and when he finally does it takes him all afternoon and his mower keeps dying because the grass is too long?

Cluttered back yard guy.  You know, the guy that has so much crap and junk in his backyard that it looks like a tornado blew through?

Party every weekend guy.  You know, the guy that has crazy loud drunk parties every weekend?

Crazy paint job guy.  You know, the guy that painted his house in with colors so bright that you can see it from space??

There have been many times that we have found a wonderful home for a buyer and guess what?  Mr. Friggin Rogers wasn’t their neighbor, it was one of those guys mentioned above.  Before you buy a home MAKE SURE to look around first.  A friendly tip from The Christiansen Team:)

Love the last picture of the house.  I bet the owner thinks that it is the most awesome paint job in the neighborhood!

The painted house makes me think of some of the ones I see in the Sunset district of San Francisco--I always think they chose the paint colors after a week or so of dreary fog.
