An informative, helpful and entertaining blog, BrickUnderground.com, recently asked me to list things that sellers should or should not be telling their brokers.
No. 3 on this list was this:
“’We had a lot of (pick one) bedbugs, mice, drug dealers until (pick one) the exterminator came, the police came, we gave up trying to get rid of them.’
“In the event of a lawsuit, if a court ultimately decides that the presence of such varmints is a material fact that affects the value of the apartment, it will cost the seller and the broker.”
You may enjoy the rest of my points.
