Prod, nudge, hint hint

Every day I pass them. A uniformed man or woman sitting outside the two empty homes across from our subdivision. They are there at 7 in the morning. They are still there at 3. Still at 7 at night, they sit. There position throughout the day shifts only with the shade they are trying to stay protected by. Equipped with a cooler, an iPod and lawn chair, these folks sit one at a time in front of empty homes. This has been going for the last two or three weeks.

Finally, my curiosity got the best of me. I had to ask.

“What on earth are you guys doing around here?????”

Evidently, they are a security company, who has been hired to send out security guards to prevent break-ins and vandalism by watching over these homes.

ALL DAY LONG. In 110 degree heat.

And, get this… in this neighboring subdivision there are 32 empty homes they are hired to watch over ALL DAY LONG.


Thirty two, brand new, empty homes. I think the whole subdivision only has 50 homes (well maybe a little more, but it is small)

So, here is my question… Why are all my friends still in MESA???

There is plenty of room out here!!! Come on over – you can have your pick, get an amazing deal and be near the new temple!!!

I’m just saying…

I suddenly wish I were looking for a new house.

I know of a 5 bedroom home, 2 and 1/2 bathroom, with a an upstairs bonus room and an extra large lot that auctioned for $52,000.

And the rumor in the neighborhood is that our model, considerably smaller, auctioned for $10,000. SO, so SAD!
