Parting words. Discontented neighbor? Recent foreclosure.

Farewell note foreclosure house

No dirty cuss words!  Just a nice farewell to the neighborhood.

Imagine moving to a neighborhood and working hard to make the neighborhood more lovely by planting lots of plants and making flowerbeds and redoing the house you have bought!  Imagine growing more and more dissatisfied with your move!  Imagine spending so much money  on redoing the house with brand new bathrooms, new kitchen cabinets, new flooring, new siding......and on and on and on!

We handle foreclosures and this one had these parting words on the bathroom mirrors.  "Your neighbors are not what they seem."   "Beware! This is a TOXIC neighborhood.  Run."  These two were in one bathroom.  This was in the second bathroom.  "Do not trust the neighbors!"

Parting words from sad neighbor Foreclosure

We do not know the whole story but we can almost visualize an unhappy neighbor who has run out of money making an old house new again, packing all his bags, loading the truck, taking one last look around the house,  admiring the hard work he'd put in, wishing things had been better and then giving a last farewell to the neighborhood by writing on the bathroom mirrors.  BUT.....what if it wasn't him who wrote the words but a neighbor?   It's a good mystery.

Well, certainly an attetion getter. If I walked into a property and saw this I'm sure my pulse would race. Then again I always feel bad for the people who had to leave. Yes, I know "if you don't pay you can't stay" but there is always more to the story.

Well, that could be a real tough way to sell a home or even a bad message before close if the did a final walk thru

well I hope that's not permanent marker.  And well I understand.  I'm waiting on my neighbor to die so I can put my house on the market. (not kidding) I really wouldn't feel right about putting someone else next door to him.

Dena, I agree.  And this house had so many new and nice improvements in lots of spaces.

William, the question now is whether the words will come off or will the mirrors have to be replaced.

Good morning Barbara. This is very scary. I would be heartsick if I found this in a walk through.

That is a good mystery, Barbara.  From a home-buyer perspective, I don't know if I would want to take that on.

Thanks, Myrl, but I guess I can't brag to my local newspaper about the group that featured it!  You might have to change its name!
