Neighborhoods are constantly in flux. Last Summer the neighbors behind our house removed some of the largest most beautiful trees on the block and they put up the largest garage on the block. It looks like a barn, in fact, and "See Rock City" might easily be displayed on it.The view from our backyard was once serene and private until these changes occurred. Now the question is how many trees or shrubs will it take to soften the view from our yard.

The new folks, having lived there for about a year, now have the house on the market. They are advertising their "improvements" and have set the list price 25% higher from the price they paid last Summer. We don't know them, but we will live with the consequences of their brief time here for years.

How do changes affect your house's value? A realtor can give you a good sense of what buyers are generally looking for. What's happened on your street and in your backyard? Let us hear from you. We'd love to hear from you.

Have a great day!
