A couple years ago, there was a house in our neighborhood that was for sale.
They had planned to move about 50 miles north and had put money down on a house that was being built. But after a few months they decided to take their home up the street off the market.
Last fall, the husband got a new job. In the midwest. He accepted the job. His wife and her son decided to stay in the house to finish out the school year. They put the house up for sale again in March this year. After the son finished the school year, they moved to the midwest to be reunited as a family. And the house? It sits empty with a "For Sale" sign in front.
Empty and for sale.
