Would you want to live next to this?
I spent Saturday afternoon showing some great homes in New Braunfels. My clients really liked 2 of the homes we saw and are in the process of deciding which one they want to submit an offer on. The home that was their favorite, however did not make the cut. Why? Well the home has the misfortune of being located right next to this.
Once my clients saw the neighbor's pool and yard they crossed the house off the list and moved on. This is very unfortunate for the owners who are trying to sell. They have a nice house in a nice area that is priced right, sadly for them, their neighbor's pool is hurting the value of their home. I really hope the neighbor can clean up his act and these sellers get their home sold.
This is such a difficult situation and I'm not sure what the best course of action would be. You certainly don't want to offend your neighbors but something needs to be done. Something as small as a pool cover might even do the trick. What do you think? What would you advise if this was your listing?
