Condo Living Update

So turns out one of the neighbors couldn' t meet on Wednesday. So we only meet with the "coupled" neighbors. They were very nice, but couldn't help but complain about the downstairs unit. Complain about what? The noise mainly. This is the reason why we chose to live on this side of the house, because our unit is over their bedrooms/basement. The other townhouse is over the living room, dining room, and kitchen. They have their entrances on the same side.

Of course on Friday night as we were heading out to dinner, we were caught by the second set of neighbors. Also a nice set of brothers, but they were complaining about the upstairs neighbors. The were complaining about money and pickiness, etc.

So here we are the couple in the middle. We're more reasonable and tolerant for sure about the noise (we can't hear it at all). We're also more easy going about money (the couple are accountants). The brothers are very young and immature 22 and 25. So we have to play mediator.

My DH just wants to sell our place and move. Sometimes I do too. I wonder if it's worth all this headache?

Are you new to your condo? If so, it might just be part of the gettin'-used-to-it process.

Heck no. We lived here alone in 2005-2006, when the other two condo owners moved in May 2006.

Before that it was newly renovated/condonized. So we were King and Queen of the association.
