Not all neighbors are nosey maroons but the OP asked about them.
The questions usually start with "Are you the new owner" "You working for the bank" and then gets to "When are they going to do this or that" and devolves into whining about the neighbood property values. It's amusing when you point to the real estate sign out front and repeat the number out loud for them to call (they havent). We have told some of the PIAs if they were so concerned about real estate values, why havent they come over and cut the grass, or picked up the front yard, or removed the spray painted f*** from the garage door.
Had a guy catch me mowing one day when I had 15 left to do and it was already late morning. Who is the bank, what is their address, etc. Everytime I said I don't know, I don't have them information on me (it was in thr truck), he gets po'd like I owe him answers. Sorry, I don't sit on the couch looking out the window all day.
DO NOT LET UNAUTHORIZED PEOPLE INSIDE THE HOUSE!
It may be an innocent female neighbor who just wants to peek inside in case her SIL wants to buy it. Then two days later all of the copper is ripped out of the house. Or personals. It happens. You can be held liable. If someone wants to look, have them get hold of the broker or the company handling the listing.
