“Well, I’d love to show you the property,” she says. “But I should warn you about the neighbor.”
“Ah. Uhm, what sort of neighbor.”
“Well, he calls himself ‘Nazi Bob.’ It’s a bit of a, uh, self taken moniker.”
“Well,” I say, “what else do you have in that range.”
It had never even occurred to me that neighbors might be an issue. But of course, they are. Neighbors, indeed, can make or break a house. And I’m glad the realtor spared me two hours of driving to look at a house I wouldn’t purchase, not for 10 dollars, if my neighbor’s name is Nazi Bob.
