#37, I don't think you can just go to a realtor and tell them not to give the house to someone just because you don't want them living next door; unless you have proof their stalking you or have a restraining order against them, things like that. And I don't think a realtor would legally be allowed to not let someone make an offer on a house just because someone asked them too.

A family photo and a pregnant belly are proof. Look, all I'm saying is maybe the realtor 'might' consider her inquiry for the house to go to another couple. I highly doubt that her parents and in-laws are the only ones bidding on the house. And as these comments show, no one likes the idea of their parents or in-laws living anywhere on their block, let alone next door. You never know unless you try, maybe the realtor will show sympathy and understanding.

Hey, having family close by is not a bad thing at all, unless there are serious hate issues.

Just think of all the times you can drop off junior next door and go on a date!
It's a win-win scenario for everybody.

That isn't always the case. They'll be right next door. Try saying no to a visit when they're right there and all you want to do is NOTHING that evening. Good Luck! My MIL lives 20 minutes away. I think you need at least a few miles between you to keep sane. There would be no privacy!
