Great Neighbors!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Lake Country 275289

My real estate partner/husband and I are in an unusual postion:we have listed the house next door to us for sale in Lake Oconee's Harbor Club! How do you show prospective buyers the home and not try to size them up as good neighbors? Do they have a large dog? Do they play loud music? Do they have a friendly personality? On the plus side, we are the perfect ones to extol the benefits of living in beautiful Harbor Ridge. Our neighborhood is close to amenities, the golf course surrounds us and can be easily accessed by one's personal golf cart. There is security in this gated community, and we even have lawn care taken care of at a reasonable price! Come view this beautiful traditional cottage, and "try out" to be our neighbor.

You don't worry about it....it is only natural to feel out your potential new neighbor. We all want the perfect neighbor. You will show the home and do your job as a listing agent and sell the home. You will certainly have an insight to your new neighbor...good or bad.

I understand exactly what you're saying, Suzie! It's only natural when you're listing the house next door for sale. I had a situation where I was listing a house next door to my very close friend. I had the same kind of questions about various buyers who came to see the house. But, as we both know, when you're listing the home for sale it's the seller's best interests that count! Your community sounds lovely!

Thanks, Nina. The house is still listed, the market is sluggish here, and this community is mostly upscale second homes. You're right, I don't really have control, it's just an interesting position to be in!
