She just loved the place! Even bought my furnishings. Its almost 5K sq feet and she moved in with her extended family. Even paid my handyman to walk her through the house to show her how to change filters on HVAC and set water heaters when she traveled. LOVED IT!!! Then 8 months later she sold the house basically listed at enough to cover her sales expenses and new landscaping she had put in. Our market has appreciated so she seems to have gotten her price. But I am curious and have the urge to email her (we had traded many emails during the process when she was buying our furnishings) to find out why.

Would you or just be a grown up and live with the unknown. I know its not my business. But we lived in the house for a dozen years......

Rule 1 of resales is never contact the buyer of your home after settlement.

This seems very strange. Why do you care? You're not the owner anymore, and I don't get why you would even keep up with it? Creepy.

I wouldn't contact the new owner. However, I probably would contact one of my ex-neighbors and see what they know about it. (sorry, but like the OP, I'd be curious.)

Why would you even know that? Are you stalking her?

High on the creep scale for sure.

My thoughts exactly. How does OP even know the buyer is selling it? Ew. Maybe he/she is the reason she's selling

I think you're being a little rough on the OP. We took a loss of $100K on our last home sale (Phoenix metro AZ in 2012, we bought in 2007. ) I look at the prices that those homes are selling for a couple of times a year (the fact that prices have risen slowly makes me feel better about not keeping and renting the house). If the new owner had put it on the market, I would have found out that way.

That's not stalking her. That's just curiosity about my ex-neighborhood. I do the same thing with the house we sold in 2007 for a significant gain. It makes me feel better to know it still hasn't come back up to the price we sold it for in 2007.
