You know, this is about post #10 of your rather rude comments on other people's advice. Most people posting on this thread are trying to help the OP, not tear into the comments of others who are also trying to think of something that will help resolve her situation.

I don't think your comments are helpful.

In order to help the first poster, we need to identify bad advice.

We don't want that poster thinking that bad advice is a good idea.

And technically you can move as many times as you like as long as you have the means to do so.

If that happens, none of this matters, so they might as well stay put.

My guess is if you're renting, they don't have the financial means to move much?

Otherwise, they'd just own their own home.

Are you an unsavory neighbor, perchance?

No, but there's plenty of unsavory neighbors in our area and we never considered moving because of them.

We just avoid them.

I'm not even going to respond to the one moron on here who thinks it's acceptable to threaten a neighbor, nevertheless a woman. You my friend, must have come from the same hood school these characters come from. If that's how you speak to your neighbors, you deserve a punch too.

For the "poor" comment, I live in NY, and plenty of poor folks in my city can afford to "rent an apartment" at about 3 grand for a studio :rolleyes. Our rent is more then what people pay in other states for their mortage. We rent bc WE as a family made the decision for me to stay home with our children while they were small and did not have a downpayment yet at the time. So everything has it's price in life I guess.

And last but not least, we will be home owners next month!! After this post, my DH and I discussed everything and decided to try one more time looking for a home. Contacted out agent, set up 3 more showings and third time was a charm and we found our home and are currently under contract in the attorney review stage. So good riddens to next door! My oldest, whom I was concerned about moving out of state during the school year, is the most excited girl you have ever met. She wakes up every morning talking about her new playroom and going to the pool this summer, so I think she will be just ok =) And thanks for everyone on here for their helpful advice!
