My next door neighbors here in Franklin put up the FOR SALE sign about two months ago, maybe even more. They’re long gone but the sign is still there. The home is for the taking. Two months later.
This past weekend we had a party at our house, and as a few of the guys talked outside while food was being grilled I mentioned to one of my guests that the house was vacant and up for grabs.
He pulled out his smartphone and with genuine curiosity and interest looked up the details.
As I had informed him, it was confirmed the owners were asking $3999,999.
My guest wasn’t phased.
He let out a cry of astonishment following an audible gulp.
“$8,000 in taxes!”
Twice what he now pays in a nearby suburb.
Appeal totally vanished.
Smartphone was put away.
