They explained who they were and she apparently said she didnít care who they were they needed to get out off the property or sheís calling the cops. She proceeded to tell them they werenít wanted there and she didnít want them as neighbors due to their ethnicity. Naturally they pulled their offer. Pisses me off that people in 2019 are still this ignorant. Also pisses me off because obviously itís potentially money out of my pocket.

Anyone ever have a neighbor kill a sale?
I am fairly certain if the statement was against their ethnicity, you are in lawsuit territory, should you choose to go that route. Especially if you are in an HOA.

Sounds like you have your hands full. I had psychotic neighbors where I last lived (you can look up some old threads for their interesting behavior) but I waited until they left town for the season to sell, knowing they would be an issue.

Did you try talking to your neighbor? Is it a race issue only, or something they're going to try to screw you on every buyer. I've never been through it but have heard nightmare stories of neighbors running everyone off to try to get the land cheap for themselves.
