How to stop your house moving, and what you need to do in the meantime
Sarasota, Arizona — The town of SarasOTA is bracing for the possibility that the house next door to its house that it was supposed to move to has been sold to a developer.
Residents say they were told in January that the new owner had plans to build a home on their property and they were concerned the new owners would move out.
The town was shocked to learn the deal was being made.
They’re still waiting for a letter to confirm the sale, but a message left with the property’s developer, Robert Darden, was not returned.
The new owner was identified as a real estate developer who lived in a nearby house.
Darden did not respond to a request for comment.
The home was built in 1928, but was later purchased in 2009.
It’s now home to a man who is trying to move into a new house on the property.
The new owner did not return our request for an interview.
When the home was sold in 2009, residents began organizing to stop the sale and a protest was held outside the house.
The next day, residents learned the new buyer was going to move out and relocate.
Neighborhood leaders and neighbors say it’s a common occurrence and it’s difficult to stop.
The house has been a community favorite for years, but now it’s in the hands of a new owner.
I don’t think I’ve seen a house in a long, long time where it’s sold.””
It’s been a house for a long time.
