Nah, they're the sort of people who've been conditioned by market
trendsetters and advertisements to want *NEW* instead of good quality.
It's consumerism at work.

Nah, they'll have forgotten, they'll just gripe about the problems
with their neighbors and drool over new homes the next time the Parade
of Homes comes around.  In a few years, they'll move on up to the next
level of new McMansion-style home, while old neighborhoods
deteriorate, especially the old cheap housing and, sadly the really
old quality homes that haven't had the upkeep necessary to keep them
attractive.
