Mike and Chris listed their house last week. They’re moving to a newer house in the one of the villages south of Denver. Mike can be so weird about things. I found out the house was listed when I saw the for sale sign in the yard. I talked to him the previous evening but he didn’t mention the house was hitting the market. He wouldn’t tell me the listed price so I had to Google it. How strange is that?
Yesterday, we went to breakfast before running errands. Mike told me the new house is the same size as his existing house because it has the same number of rooms. He gives the major cross streets of the new house but he will not use the name of the exclusive enclave. While running errands, he drove by the new house. It was clearly not the same size as his existing house. I knew better than ask the price.
Later in afternoon, I Googled the new house. It’s 4,400 sq. ft. while the old house is 2,900 sq. ft. The new house is almost twice as expensive as his old house yet it’s the least expensive house on the block.
Mike is odd but I’ll miss him as a neighbor. I will not miss the early morning calls wanting to know who I banged the night before because there is a strange car in my driveway.
