I have a martin house, and I have a story almost exactly like yours!
Don't expect the martins to move in so soon, it may take a couple years for them to nest in it. 2 years ago, I had a pair of Tree Swallows nest in it, then, last year, bluebirds nested in it during the spring, and after they were done, the martins moved in. Bluebirds are defenitely the most terretorial. Bluebirds can easily fight off Tree Swallows, and even a whole flock of martins (depending on how large the flock is). Now I discurage the bluebirds, even though they are pretty birds, they have SOOOO many other places to nest in my yard.
