I was also at the eye doctors last week and sat next to two guys having a chat about the changes in their neighborhoods. The part I heard was from a guy in Frisco and he said that all his rental neighbors had sold and a bunch of Northeast people moved in permanently. He didn't like the vibe on the street anymore.
I take that with a grain of salt. A lot of people consider anyone from north of Petersburg or east of OH or TN as being from the Northeast.
I have a second home owner neighbor whom I talk with once or twice a year. He assured me that one of our neighbors, whom he doesn't like, was from NYC. That person is actually from Arlington, VA.
I'd love to know what the "new vibe on the street" was. Do you think that he felt looked down on or disrespected? Were they fixing up their new properties and making him look bad? Obviously it was something that the renters didn't mind, but renters usually don't complain about the locals, at least until they get back home.
