The Last House to Be Sold!? The Garbage Station Situation

in #photography5 months ago

These three houses were recently built by a company named Open House. The company, while it doesn't have the best reputation is a major sponsor for a local B league basketball team known as the Craine Thunders. They even sponsored the building of a brand new world class basketball arena in the town.

To the point though, the company is buying up land and building houses faster than the economy can absorb. In the picture above, these three houses were built almost a year ago and so far, only one has sold. If you look closely at the house to the left, upfront in the picture, you can see a make shift garbage station. This is a common practice across Japan. It saves time in the collection of garbage by city workers. When you think about it, it makes sense as the city workers only need to stop at one location in a block/ or area. I don't know how it is in your country but in Jamaica, in my neighborhood, each house has their own garbage bin outside of their homes, so the city workers have to stop at each house and collect the trash. Not exactly time efficient.

Culturally, looking at the house in the picture with the garbage station right beside, I think it will be the last to be sold. My reasoning is, most buyers wont want to live right beside the garbage station as it harbors pests such as roaches and crows. In Japan, each area has 2 designated garbage disposal days. So the sight of trash outside the house will only be visible twice a week.The cleaning of the station is another thing. While the duties are shared by the community, the house closest to the station would be the only hose available to use. I have heard of a personal experience in which a neighbor used another's hose to clean the station without giving the owner a heads up. And they did this in the middle of the night. The owner thought it was a thief and almost called the police. Luckily they realized it was their neighbor but it has left their relationship sore.

The house that sold is the furthest from the garbage station and can be seen to the extreme right of the photo. I think that the reason is, it is the furthest from the main street and the garbage station. I could be wrong, but that is my reasoning. On the other hand, some would find being closer to the garbage station an advantage as they only have to walk a short distance to dispose of their household trash. It all depends on the home buyer's perspective, but in general, I think most people would try to avoid the house closest to the garbage station. What do you think?- I believe the next house to be sold will be the one in the middle, leaving the house closest to the garbage station to sit on the market for sometime or discounted.

It happens in my country too, each house with a garbage bin. This helps keep the street clean. The house near the garbage station is not really a bad idea to me if I was to buy it, there must be a way to control pest from entry my house.

Yeah it's not that big of a deal but I just feel it will be the last house to be sold. And the truth is there aren't many pests around. I think the black house is the better looking one of 3.

I wouldn't like to get a house or live in a house that is close to a garbage stage. Those reasons you gave above are enough. I had rather buy a waste disposer and dispose my garages in there.

Ahh garbage stage, that sounds like a better name for it. Unless that house is discounted compared to the others, I wouldn't consider it. Granted Japanese even keep their trash clean and separate the recyclable.

Even if it is being discounted, I would still ignore because of the air pollution. The effect is going to be worse.

I can imagine how smelly the place will be since it is close to a garbage station
It will be really smelly
That's air pollution

Hannah I didn't even think about the smell, but that's another good point. Especially in the summer time when things rot quick.

The garbage station must have been deserted for so long

It seems that it is shared by more that just the three houses.The person that buys that home will have to live well with the neighbors.

Just like when the name of the company gets bad once in the market no one likes to buy their products so it is better that one should go with the advice of the people so that in the future like this Don't face things.

@dmilliz Apparently I was blocked from entering reggaejahm, did I understand that correctly? If this is so, then I will once again be convinced that doing good is a thankless task and it is better not to do it 😄

Blocked from where? The community or the interface?

reggaejahm.com Attempts to enter with the keys yielded nothing, this happened yesterday, after I had not entered there for a long time. The same thing is happening now.

The keychain extension doesn't seem to be working on the site

Then, this is reassuring, lol, it is advisable to warn about problems, otherwise you know, all sorts of thoughts come into your head, I already thought that you had handed over the reins to a third party, since there are no announcements from you, and some kind of movement has begun in the market. Have a great day and hello twins!
