Wow! I cannot believe your agents did not ask, but if you notice they are all from outside areas! They do not know the area you are talking about, and there is nothing in it for them to promote it to you. It would have been kinder to notify the listing agent of your concerns. I also cannot believe, Miriam, that if you "looked" at the house, that your Realtor did not call the listing agent to get details.
The neighbor's "pit bull" is a lab mix, in a fenced yard. There are NO back yard cages, and there is only this one which is a pet, and a lab mix. The neighbor owner is quite a well known Maltese breeder (fully permitted breeding kennel inside on her property years ago). She is no longer breeding, and has not for over 5 years. She has that pet dog, and 2 pugs which are her granddaughter's. Not that that is anyone's business.
You passed on a very good property at an excellent price, for chatting with the wrong sources.... more
