Wuthering Heights? Feeling like the neighborhood where you live has changed and isn't the desireable location it once was? Sometimes that old saying, "Location, Location, Location" has even more meaning when a neighborhood shifts and property values are affected to the downside. Making a commitment to your neighborhood and encouraging your neighbors to care about their property and their neighborhood is a smart move for everyone. Perhaps neighbors could spend less time noticing the little things (like not raking the leaves or sweeping the driveway) and more time noticing the big items which buyers take note of when they come by to preview a property. Take a look at the "big picture" in your neighborhood and get things heading in a better direction. Organize a neighborhood cleanup and recruit the neighbors to get to know one another better as well as build some "pride of ownership" in their house, their neighborhood and their market values. In a buyer's market the quality of the houses in a neighborhood matters more than ever.
