the house next to us is on the market! come live there. Biggish suburban house, not a mcmansion, across from conservation land!

That'd be lovely, and the house is indeed nice, but that house is way out of my price range. Also, their asking price is delusional. It sold for about $50k *less* than the current asking price in 2006. at the peak of the bubble-market insanity, and indeed, Zillow's "Zestimate" is a number that I think is still a tad high but is more in the right ballpark at least.

Also, the taxes on it are upwards of $6k...that's kind of out of my cash-flow range as well.

FYI, the current owners did do a bunch of updates which is why the price is higher but wouldn't be reflected on Zillow. If you're curious, I can send you the photos from when it was listed before. It looks a lot better now. (Though clearly it was staged for the photoshoot. I seriously doubt they actually keep a tea service and wine service on the beds. :)

They seem to have done a bunch of work to improve the drainage on the property too- the old owners used to complain that water pooled in their backyard, and it created a lake in ours too. Now both are much dryer and the drainage goes through the woods out back.

Yeh, the renovations maybe make it worth a bit more, but in any event, even if I could whack a few $K off the asking price, it's way far away from my budget ceiling, as you no doubt know.

bikergeek: plus the neighbors (us) wouldn't mind you working on cars in the driveway! :)

and *your* neighbors wouldn't mind a bunch of weirdos blasting techno music off the back deck and hanging upside down on an aerial silks rig. :-) But alas, that house is way the hell out of my budget. Sorry.

Which side of you?

It's the big grey one to the right of us, not the teeny cape on the other side of the wetland. I think it might be a good size for you! there's a nice family room and porch in the back.
