The Local Real Estate Buyer May Become A ME Home Seller, Is Creeped Out.

The Local Real Estate Buyer May Become A ME Home Seller, Is Creeped Out.

The expression “your best neighbor may just be no neighbor” is an easy to remedy situation in Northern Maine.

Simple to accomplish in rural Aroostook County. One of the northern most counties or country locations in Vacationland.

The low population makes it easy to get away from people if wide open space is what you seek.

Less people per square mile can remove lots of obstacles if being neighborly, social with those around you is not the plan.

Heading to the country is easy in Maine.

It is only a half mile in any direction from the center of most small Maine towns.

Had a property owner in Houlton Maine call today and lament he has a creepy neighbor.

This real estate home seller to be was not thinking of planting a property for sale sign in his front yard.

Until the new neighbor came on board.

Rolled into town. That made him realize what a good neighbor he had to his Houlton Maine home before he did unload the moving truck. Prior to relocated here to “The County”.

I asked what is the problem?

 donkey in maine photoCausing the knickers in a knot, nostrils to flare, ears to go back ready to kick about to happen?

For starters, this Houlton Maine home owner has done the A to Z updates, renovations on his in town place.

To the point that a resale of the listing is going to be hard to clear all the hurdles.

To get back, just to break even all that coin put into the sticks and bricks.

But salvaging what he can to just run. To get up and go away from this new neighbor in Houlton Maine is all he has on his mind. The wife, kids feel the same way too.

The color of his neighbor’s Maine house suddenly is the same shade, exact hue of the one next door where he lives in. Any time this Houlton Maine home owner does one thing, “the shadow” he calls his neighbor does the same Texas two step. Like Mutt and Jeff.

Being out in the yard means taking the chance of oh oh. Here comes his new neighbor to shoot the breeze.

Not just once in awhile, but immediately, as if waiting with his coat on. To grab his hat.maineducks8 Any time the Maine home owner is outside his in town house.So is the neighbor.

Like he is under surveillance.

The conversation about why doesn’t he buy new cars like the neighbor does?

That then gets the just moved here neighbor to go on and on.

To complain along the same refrain themes.

About how up against it, broke, tapped out financially drained he and his wife are.

This home owner in Houlton Maine that is wanting to get out of town, seeks country living. But not too far out. Is hot to trot, anxious to either see the new neighbor move.

To relocate cross town, out of state, any where but where he is now. To hopefully get transfered. But at the same time not holding his breath. Not going to wait for that to happen. Has reached out to me the Houlton Maine real estate broker, old childhood friend.

In the meantime is making plans, taking steps to high tail it to avoid having to engage with this new neighbor much longer.

Who second guesses everything he does and wants justification. And that follows his steps, carbon copies purchases, home construction projects, any updates along the way. With the side by side Houlton Maine homes looking more and more alike.
