Toady I went to inspect a property that I took as a new listing and to take the listing photos. Just doing my job. I removed a few dead bugs from the vacant home whose owners live out-of-state, I swept a little dirt away from the front door.
I took my photos, put up the lockbox and the sign. As I proceeded around the house, a sound got my attention and caused me to look up.
To my big surprise, there is someone who is calling this house a home already! Should I call him a tenant? Should I call him a squatter?
A little owl had made his home in the exterior molding which consists of some sort of foam and in absence of hollow trees or caves is apparently quite suitable for nest building!
He peaked at me, I peaked at him, we didn't seem too threatening to each other.
But wait.. the house is for sale! Do I need to disclose the feathered occupant? Do I just not say anything and hope once he is discovered, the new owners will allow him to stay? What I probably will do is to find a wildlife rescue organization and ask for advice. I'd rather see him moved than evicted!
