Neighbor house switcheroo…

#VT – Sadly, I will soon be selling my large house in the village. I very much want to stay right here. If you are selling, or know of anybody who is or might be selling a small (2 bedroom?) house or condo in Richmond Village, please contact me. Thank you.”

Posted by Joanna on the Richmond Front Porch Forum.  The next day, she received from Christy…

Hi Joanna – We have a 2 bedroom townhouse that we love, but that we will eventually outgrow.  We’ve been looking for homes in the village… we’d love to stay here.  Have you already sold your house?

Joanna shared with us just today…

I am thrilled to report that, two months after my initial FPF posting, I  purchased the townhouse and Christy and her family purchased my home.  Amazingly we each found the perfect home and we were able to sell our homes without ever putting them on the market.  Thank you, Front Porch Forum!

    Hi All,

    My girlfriend and I are currently looking for a new apartment to rent as rent for our condo is being bumped up $400 more per month. We currently live in Essex Junction and would love to stay in the area but are open to anything. We are both young professionals and also have a friend who will be living with us who is in the same situation. A 2 or 3 bdrm would be perfect. Please respond here or email me at
