Getting to know the co-op or mobile home park before buying

I recently listed a mobile home in a Hinsdale, NH co-op (Swamp Ask Brook Co-op).  The home is located approximately 200 yards from the trail system, ideal for hunting on conservation land and for snowmobiling and riding quads for miles and miles. (See Video for 18 Park Drive Hinsdale, NH)

Something strange happened to me the other day as I was taking my video of this new listing, which will soon be placed on Youtube. I filmed the exterior and it's surroundings.  Fall in New England is so beautiful so it's always important to get a shot of the home's landscaping.  Then I went inside and photographed and video'd the interior. 

When I finished I locked up and was surprised to see a hunter walking in full hunting gear down the quiet street.  He stopped and we talked about the co-op a bit.  He told me he'd once hunted a moose and has seen bears around and several deer.  He knew the area quite well and shared some more information about the co-op before he went ahead with his hunt.

 I'm quite happy to have gotten to know a neighbor who was able to help me draw a better picture for my buyers about the co-op.  Sometimes it's helpful to talk with neighbors, just as it is helpful for buyers to visit a home during times when the neighbors are out for a quick conversation about the area.  In my case, this warm welcome certainly made me feel comfortable with my surroundings and, maybe, as a buyer, I would have been more interested in living there as well.
