Hey, Neighbor! You know what today is?

I did not even know it existed – National Good Neighbor Day.

Apparently September 28th has been designated by the U.S. Senate as National Good Neighbor Day.

This is the day for all to recognize and appreciate your good neighbor.

As a Brevard County, Florida real estate agent I am always amazed at how many sellers I encounter who do not know their neighbors.

I find myself hosting open houses in Viera and Rockledge and the first people through the door are the neighbors.   They have never been in their neighbor’s home nor even spoken to them.  I affectionately refer to them as “nosy neighbors.”

Another amazing occurrence is when I am showing homes to buyer clients and the seller remains in the home during the showing (a practice I discourage).

Buyer prospects always seem to ask about the neighbors… And the answer is almost always the same – “Great people, the salt of the Earth!”

Nobody wants to buy a house where the neighbors are not nice! 

So, on this National Good Neighbor Day, wave to "Joe" next door, be cordial, maybe even say hello to your good neighbor.

After all, they are all good, aren’t they?
