If lights flicker, you’d better tell your broker

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.
