Types of Neighbors Buyers Don’t Want

“The neighbors’ noise and aesthetics are among the top concerns of home buyers,” says Noah Goldberg, a Redfin real estate professional in Northern New Jersey. “If you have a bad neighbor, that’s something you’ll deal with every single day. You might hate that they still have Christmas decorations up in February or that the family upstairs lets their kids run around at night. Many people list their homes not because of a fault of the property but due to the surrounding situation.”

Goldberg shared on Redfin’s blog some of the most common type of neighbor complaints he encounters, whether from single-family or apartment dwellers.
