What kind of people would you think they would be?

How do you think they would feel about you moving in the neighborhood.....for example David Edwards neighbors didnt care for his flashy ways and trailer park ways towards the end...he was in a kinda upscale Palm Beach gated neighborhood

Do you think they would even acknowledge you? Resent you?

My brother told me of a neighborhood in London where the neighbors didnt ask to borrow a cup of sugar instead they would ask to borrow a blank check...Billionaire's row I believe it was called...

Would you put up a nice security fence as soon as you moved in??

Me personally I'd like to have a house in the back part of a neighborhood on two or three lots With a 10ft brick privacy fence...I dont want to be isolated where someone could wage a war against my home and possibly breach security....but that's just me....

How about you??

    Getting along with your neighbors is convenient, but not mandatory. The bigger your property is the less important your neighbors are. If I were to win a jackpot the distance between my house and the neighbors' property lines would be proportional to the size of the jackpot.

    Where somebody lives isn't anywhere close to the top of my list of reasons to be interested in somebody, so I might get through life without ever even meeting the new neighbors, except for passing them on the road.

      My nearest neighbor would be miles away if I won the lottery.

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

      For a lead role in a cage?

        A person I met in Austin,TX........bought 50 acres land outside town and built a

        very "BIG" house in (exact middle of property). I actually ask him why he would

        do that....................................???????????????????????????????????????????

        He said, "I have always wanted a place where I could PI$$ in my front yard and

        have no neighbor complain about me." !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          I have a feeling they'd be falling all over me way before I'd be  giving them the time of day.  I can see if you act like the Edwards guy (his neighbors probably knew he was doing drugs) but if you a reasonable person and present yourself well, play well with others, etc., I cannot imagine having any problem.

            Skeptical well I dunno about Edward's former neighbors nore his nasty habits

            but I know for myself I'd streach out the process of officially moving in over 6 weeks or more cause of all the remodeling I'd end up having to do

            of course I'd  anonymously put out notice out that a known [dog h8r] was moving into thar 'hood

              I don't hate dogs but I do hate owners who allow them to bark incessantly.  Next time I move, I'll walk thru the neighborhood several times at all times of day to see if there are any of those.  And try to talk to the potential neighbors and feel them out as to whether barking bothers them, and ask if a barker moved in if they'd be willing to help take the owner to court to shut the thing up.

              My neighbor's dog is barking as I type.  Has been for a couple hours now.  Barked at 1:30 am last Sunday morning and woke me up.  Barks regularly at 11 pm to midnight so I can't go to sleep until way late because if I get woken up I can't get back to sleep.  I'm totally sick of living my life around a dog.

                Thats my thought, walk out the door and do what I want, play my music loud, I'd still use the bathroom, hubby and son could do what they want.

                      If having a talk with the neighbor didn't help and there were no local codes that could be enforced, I'd just find a way to make sure the neighbor was just as annoyed and sleepless as I was.

                            Wow did you see what he spent on buying the neighbors out?? It was bargain basement time....14.5 million is all he paid....his house cost almost 10 times that!!!
