THE PARTY HOUSE NEXT DOOR - ANY SUGGESTIONS???

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WERTH REALTY

So, a listing has some partyer's next door.  Let me rephrase that, PARTIERS!!!  People coming and going constantly, which I know is a red flag for drugs, and the way they are acting all the time on there grass and steps.  Fighting all the time between themselves and yelling and screaming at 3AM. 

The police have been there a number of times, and taken people away, but it keeps happening over and over.  I am confident by the Facebook wall, thanks to there stupidity of saying what happened last night, etc... of whats going on over there and looking at there friends posts as well.  Certainly drugs are involved as well as Partying till 4am and the neighbors keep calling the police on them, but they don't seem to care. 

Whats next to try and sell the house?  What have you done in the past to try and get them evicted from the neighborhood, or get them out of the area legally, what options has anyone done or seen happen before, as the house is in a really nice area with a bunch of idiots that are devaluating the property by alot of money due to the fact there idiots.  The cops have been there about 15 times now and I don't know how they can exist to remain in the house? 

Any suggestions?

Dave, I wish I had some advise.  I guess you can just keep getting the police involved, at some point they will have to clean up their act or face some legal issue???

I had a client who was interested in a house that had a similiar situation.  Before she wrote her offer she called the police every day to complain about the neighbors...EVERYDAY for about 2 weeks!  Then she wrote the offer and still continued to call.  By the time she settled on the property the police had shut the house down.  When she moved in she had a boarded up house as a neighbor, but at least it was quiet.
