My wife and I are actually getting ready to move in 5 days and I am getting a little anxious. Helping people buy and sell homes on a daily basis, one would think I would be use to (nerves) of moving. We are moving to a lovely neighborhood in Marysville (Green Pastures, Garden Dr). We are super excited about this but also a little nervous. I am looking forward to being in a neighborhood, where our three year old little guy can make new friends, ride his bike on safe sidewalks, I will have a smaller yard to mow ( I now have 1.5 acres to mow), my wife and I have an opportunity to meet new neighbors and friends, and the convenience of everything Marysville has to offer. As a life long resident of the area, it has been a huge transition from my early childhood memories (where Marysville's population may have been 2000 people) to what it has become today. To me there are both pros and cons to this transition. Since I am a Realtor, I love the growth of the community. It obviously helps when people are continually moving into the area. While I am on the pro side of things, I will finish my list of pros. I love to eat, so all the new restaurants that have come to Marysville is definitely a pro. Super Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and now Lowes (do I need to say more on that?). Now for the cons- traffic is a little worse than it once was (you can't just zip through Marysville any longer), dealing with construction throughout the transition has been a little annoying, and waiting in lines at the stores and restaurants have also been a little tough getting use to. I feel that the pros far out weigh the cons during this transition in Marysville. I believe that Marysville has still maintained that small town atmosphere and a town with great morals (hence no adult entertainment or book stores) throughout this growth spurt. Kudos to Marysville's city reps. who have been involved in this transition growth. All this being said, my family and I are excited to be moving out of the country, back into a great neighborhood and a well cared for city. If you are a resident of Green Pastures I look forward to meeting you. As a Realtor I would not be doing my job if I did not mention this last line. If you or any of your friends or family members are thinking about Buying or Selling a home please feel free to pass along my information.
