When my wife and I moved here as newlyweds two years ago, we had a vacant lot to our left, an elderly librarian in front of us, and a nice Christian family on our other side.

In the course of twelve months we have lost EVERY one of them, replaced with white trash now on our left whose many domestic disputes and uncontrolled dogs have disrupted the peace, white trash hillbillies in front of us who have had the audacity to consistantly ask us for gas, rides to the bar (to catch the other spouse cheating), etc.

And now, I learn that the house on our right is about to be rented to (not that it matters) an interracial couple, her mother and her felon step-father who is out on parole.

I fear that something is just waiting to happen. My wife and I need to sell, but working and schooling full time makes it VERY hard to put a house on the market, sell it, and find somewhere else to live.

I refuse to live close to people for reasons like this. If it can be called a neighborhood, I'm not living anywhere near it.

Hi neighbor!

I just moved in next door. Wanna come over and have a few beers with me.

Link Posted: 9/16/2005 1:49:07 PM EDT
Do you think the nice people pulled up stakes because you showed up and they thought, "Great...there goes the neighborhood"?
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 1:50:49 PM EDT
If it makes you feel any better Mr. Bailey, we have lived in the same house for 20 years with all the same neighbors. A few weeks ago, the couple south of us spotted a fire in our attic (caused by a lightning strike) and called the fire dept. The retired Army nurse north of us takes care of the newspaper, mail, and pets when we're away. So there's hope.

Suck it up and do whatever you have to do to get out ASAP.

You'll be glad you did and ultimately have less to worry about.

Godspeed

All it takes is a couple (especially noisemakers) and it shoots a neighborhood all to hell in a hurry. Couple of junk cars, loud dogs and general trash and all of a sudden your house value drops (because nobody wants to move in next to trash)

And it all started with an ARFCOM member moving in.


Just kidding BB! This is why I live in the sticks. Figure I'll have to hit the tall timber within 5 years.
Plan ahead and get farther out if you can. Been where you are (situation) and know how you feel.

I take it you bought your place. Property is going high rightnow and if you have any decent equity you might look at selling, seeing as the environment around you is bringing down the value of your casa. Good luck man, and as 1shott said "I feel your pain"!

Something similar happened to us. Three Hispanic families moved into one house at the end of the block and let their kids run wild. We started seeing graffiti in the neighborhood, our neighbors' kids were getting threatened, and there were various incidences of vandalism. We move this spring to the country and have been happy. Ironically, three other neighbors also vacated the neighborhood.

They keep putting neighborhoods up all over the place.

I don't know how they fill them all.

BeetleBailey,

It is not difficult to put your house on the marcjket. Call a decent realtor. They will do it. It's what they do to earn their commision.

Call the movers. They pack your house and move your goods to your new location. Once there, they unpack you, too.

It ain't that hard.

Do it.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 2:12:30 PM EDT
My neighbors are okay and well all pretty much keep to ourselves ('cept for the kids playing). But I still dream about living right smack in the middle of 500 - 5,000 acres. Yeah, there's no nice neighbor to get your mail or see the fire in your attic, but then again you don't have to worry about this sort of thing happening. I want a ranch!

when houses around you start becoming rental houses, your 'hoods on the road to Shitville.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 2:17:46 PM EDT
I have a somewhat different attitude to it. We're fighting back. Been here for 14 years, like it too. We live in a once quiet court. All the neighbors are good folk, except one asshole who moved in a couple years ago. Single rich kid, early thirties. He has SIX vehicles, 4 of them parked in the street.( remember it's a court) His latest thing is to do burnouts with his Corvette, all the way through the court. We asked nicely that he stop....and it got worse. He even commented that we can't stop him. After talking to the State Police, we videotaped him. Since there were kids in the background of the video, the police charged him with reckless endangerment, towed the car, and God knows how much of a ticket and fine. We know he had to hire a lawyer, etc, and it must have cost big bucks. He hasn't made a sound or bothered anyone since. YOU CAN FIGHT BACK.

You live in freakin' Montana! The whole god damn state is a ranch. Unless you live near Missoula, Whitefish, or Billings, property is pretty cheap.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 2:20:10 PM EDT
Not to mention what all that will do to your property value.

That's why one neighborhood will have continual increase in property value, and another down the road, with similar homes will stagnate.

Amen to that.

I had to deal with the renting welfare queen and her bipolar fucking spawn. That's when I learned from the Sheriff that as a homeowner your SOL when the fucking spawn break in your barn and torture the farm animals and vandalise the property. Unless the Sheriff is standing right there as it is happening, you can't do anything. All I could do was rag to the welfare case worker about the the fucking welfare cunt and her fucking spawn. MY TAX DOLLARS AT WORK SUPPORTING THE FUCKING SPAWN. Lucky for me the alcoholic landlord burnt the place down and sold the land.

Pretty much my attitude. I'd like to be even more isolated than I am, but at least every one of my neighbors are related (I'm the only non-family in the `hood) and they are DEFINATELY not trash! It also helps that the houses are a good distance apart.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 3:03:43 PM EDT
I'm on the way out of my neighborhood this Spring just as soon as I can finish the stuff I have to do to get it on the market.

Of the two neighbors on either side of me, one moved out and let his idiot son live there for FREE because he's so stupid and inept, and the other passed away and the house is on the market now. It's decent and fairly stable neighborhood though, one house that was getting rented out is now owned by someone and stable.

I cannot wait to get out of here to a place with more room around me and more room inside.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 3:07:55 PM EDT
Pretty much the same thing happened to me.

At least they didn't execute your next door neighbor yet.<G>

I'm planning the big move right now too, property value in my neighborhood has never been higher than it is right now but the neighborhood is changing and when it's time to go, it's time to go. It will cost me alot but I have seen what happens to the holdouts and I don't want that to happen to me so I'm gonna bail. My neighbors house has already been tagged by some rotten little bastard from south of the border. It was cleaned off immediately but that is just the first sign of trouble.Some of my neighbors are mad at me for wanting to leave. I can't blame them for being angry but ther'es no way I'm gonna risk my biggest investment (my house) because some people are mad at me. I tell them you do what you have to do and so will I, I also tell them to read the writting on the wall (litteraly) on the wall,does that look like english to you.Am I callus? I don't think so.

It doesn't take much to really make living a headache. One shitball of a family is bad, two are unbearable. I'd say, if you ever get the chance to buy a new house get the fuck out there! Get some damned distance between you and your neighbors. Its the only way to live peacefully...

Guy in front of me is a police officer. Beside him is a fireman.
Beside me is a paramedic. Up the road a little ways, State trooper. Down the road the other way, Sheriff.
Behind me is a guy whos currently deployed to Iraq. Beside him, another paramedic. Up the road from them, another State trooper.

Its a pretty good neighborhood.

This sounds very much like the situation in my neighborhood. After idiotboy was videataped driving without a DL (for the third time) he was given the option of moving out or going to jail.

I cannot believe how quiet the 'hood has been since he left.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 5:36:27 PM EDT
Another problem is that moving can also be a crapshoot. You never know what kind of neighbors you will get in your next area...I suppose you could check it out real good, but you still never know. Good luck. My next door neighboor has a fair amount of trash, but he is a good guy, and his is the only semi-trashy house on the street. This is only my second post, so you guys are gonna think I'm retarded no matter what I say.

We have a PWT issue right now across the street. A rent house with fat ass man, wife, three small kids and a dog. Didn't cut the grass for about 6 weeks and leaves trash in his driveway. Came home yesterday to see the lawn had been cut. Find out today that the house owner was cited by the city for the yard so he had a dude come cut the grass. He also gave them until Sunday to move out and cut off the utilities. The fat ass is in a motel down the street, but the wife and three kids are sitting over there with no lights and water. This is going to be an interesting weekend.
