What to Do When Your Neighbors List Their Home for Sale
If your neighbors are having an open house, stop by. It’ll give you a chance to objectively compare what they have to what you have, and looking at the home’s list price can give you a pretty good idea of what yours may be worth. (You can get a more accurate value by visiting AutomaticHomePrices.com, though.)
Next up: Talk to your neighbors about their experience so far. Find out why they wanted to sell and think about whether it’s a good idea for you, too.
Finally, start thinking about any issues you’ve encountered with your neighbors (such as property line disputes, whether their tree fills your yard with unwanted leaves, or anything else). When new neighbors move in, bring up your issues in a diplomatic way.
