View Full Version : A Lucky Escape-but I'm so disappointed!

so here's my story (warning-it's kind of long):

My husband and I are selling our house. The kids are leaving and it's time to move on to the next phase of our lives. The plan was to buy a house in the country so I could have my horse there. My dream is to own enough property that the neighbours are a distant view, not within 20 feet as they are here in a subdivision. I am not meant to live in a subdivision.

Our Real Estate agent found us a piece of property that was perfect: 12 acres with 7 cleared pasture, a few neighbours but not visible as the lot is surrounded by trees. And it's an easy commute to town or the highway. There is even a beaver pond for cripes sake! And it's affordable. So we look at it 6 ways to sunday, start planning a house and a barn. Tonight the agent was coming over so we could make an offer on it.

My husband is on his way home from golfing and I call him to pick up flour (I'm making banana bread). He says 'listen, I can't talk now but I have info and I don't want to put an offer on the land'. We hang up and I figure he's got cold feet. After all we haven't actually sold our house yet.

So he and the agent arrive at the same time and we sit down. Here's the news he has for me: he was talking to his really good friend and describing where the lot was. His friend says 'don't buy it'. He then tells Ed why and then tells Ed that another person that Ed knows lives right there. So Ed calls him. So here's why: there's a neighbour who is the street bully. Suspicion is that he sells drugs as he's on disability but has a new house and a new vehicle every year. But that's neither here nor there. The issue is that he hunts wherever the hell he wants. He's shot in the backyard when children are out playing. He's shot various neighbourhood dogs and animals because he's pissed off at them. This neighbour that Ed talked to won't leave his horses outside if he's not home because of fear that they will be shot.

so that's it. I have no interest in buying a nightmare. If someone killed my dogs or horse I would have to kill him and really I don't need that aggravation. The agent was shocked. But the truth is that the police cannot really do anything. The neighbour Ed talked to has sworn out a Peace Bond and it hasn't made any difference.

So this is why I feel lucky and depressed all at the same time.

:sorry: for the long whine but I had to vent.
This sucks. truly sucks.

Scary story. I hope you find what you are looking for. Lucky in the long run, I'm sure.

ever found out WHY the property is for sale in the first place? If this guy does these things, then the authorities should be involved. If that fails, we'll all come over and do a photoshoot of his behaviour :evil2:

So sorry T.

Best to find out before you really get involved. I am sure there are lots of other place out there just waiting for you.

thanks but what I really need are some Hells Angels to come and scare the crap out of him first. that would be the only thing that works. I just can't justify putting my animals in danger. and this was to be my oasis so I can't have the worry.

That line made me laugh. Well, you know what they say about one door closing.

Nova Scotia is a beautiful place and I am sure that you will find what you are looking for soon. But I do understand your disappointment.

I'm a huge believer of things happen for a reason. Sounds cliche but it is true. I am glad you found out now before you had purchased the place...think of the anxiety then...my Gawd!!! :eek: :headslap:
Don't worry B....you will find your right place when you need to...it always happens that way. I have every confidence that the right thing will happen when it is supposed to....just bide your time and put it out there and it will happen...that I believe. :angel: :grouphug:
