Being Nosy

July 11th, 2010 at 10:53 am

OK, I’ll admit it. I’m nosy. Very much so. My husband calls me “Nosy Debbie” and then laughs because his name is George and of course we all know “Curious George.”

We watch some of the shows on HGTV like House Hunters and My First Place. A hobby of ours is to go through Open Houses on Sundays. We are honest if the realtor asks…we tell them we are being nosy. We sign in so they have proof that folks have browsed, but I don’t beat any bones about it…I’m not in the market for a new house. Our house is paid for, the taxes are decent, and the neighbors are nice.

We live in a typical middle class subdivision. Most of the homes out here were built in the 1970s. Many of them still have the avocado green and harvest gold fixtures too. Every so often someone will build a new house on one of the few vacant lots. There isn’t much room for growth because a few years ago a golf course and ball diamonds were constructed on the west side of the subdivision. No homes were taken, just farmland, but the subdivision is halted.

Anyway, now that I’ve given you a little background, I’m going through an open house. It’s a newer home…being the curious and nosy folks that we are, we sort of kept an eye on it when it was being built a few years ago and said we wished we could see it when it was finished. Well, be careful what you wish for…it’s for sale and there’s an open house today.

So, in a little while I’m going to be nosy and see what this house looks like. Part of me hopes I don’t like it because I don’t want to come home and feel dissatisfied with what we have. But, part of me hopes it is really nice because in the long run a nice house in our subdivision favors all of us with good housing values.

So, off to be nosy!

    haha. yeah I can be like that. Though I've never been to an open house, that would be cool. DF is a floor sander, so he gets to see inside people's houses all day long. He has lots of ideas and inspirations for when we build our next home. I love seeing reading blog posts about what is in people's pantries or handbags Smile

    I go to open houses sometimes, we were close to buying an investment property a few years ago and were at them every weekend. It gives you good ideas to what you can do with your own place.
