Why it’s for sale Michael, 58, an electrical engineer, and Nicole, 49, a registered nurse, are relocating to Florida for a new position with Michael's company, Michael says.

The Lopezs' 1,800-square-foot home was built in 1955. Michael says:

“I loved the neighborhood. It was very comfortable, and all the lawns were well manicured. We’ve raised two daughters here, and it’s been great. We redid our eat-in kitchen five years ago with a new layout, new cabinetry, new appliances and marble countertops. We have a den where the family gathers to watch movies. It has Surround Sound, a fireplace and ceramic tile flooring. There’s also a living room and an adjacent formal dining room. It’s great entertaining space…I like the split-level design. When you walk in, you can see upstairs and downstairs. It appears large and open. The hardwood floors throughout the home were recently refinished. We also have a finished basement. The next owners can make it whatever they want: a bedroom, playroom, or a man cave…I’ve been here 24 years. I know all the neighbors five to eight doors down on either side. All good friends. I’m part of the Neighborhood Watch. Everyone cares about the neighborhood and does their part to keep it nice. Every spring, a group of us pitch in and plant flowers at the three community entrances. It’s a great time. I’m going to miss that."
