A lot of visitors

I took the tape off like everyone told me to do. I am having a lot of visitors but so far no residents. It is exciting to see the Martins. Fingers crossed.

Excellent, are they going in out of your housing or just flyovers? It only takes a couple to like what they see.

They are looking in and moving from house to house. No overnights yet

A lot of it is a numbers game. The more visitors you have the more likely that one of them will like it and decide to stay. Good luck and congrats on all the activity.
