Nightmare Listing!!! Coquitlam

Industry Observer with Seasonal Leaf Designs

oquitlam Condoemanated from behind the door when my buyer just gave the door a push, we almost threw up! It smelled like human shit!!

We ran out, locked the door & met the Realtor in the lobby struggling for fresh hair. He asked me - HOW DID YOU LIKE IT??

Reena: This is the perfect Halloween blog!!! I was right there with you. Must say I love cats but not their smells. That must have been a tenant living there, it would be too awful if that were the owner. But the listing agent should have warned you. Yuck...

Maybe "needs some renos"  meant getting rid of the cats, lol.  Disgusting!

I agree a heads-up would have been appreciated so you could be better prepared for what you're walking into. Welcome!

Sounds like it might need to be reported to the health department and the condo management company.  Can't imagine that the neighbors can't smell it.

The agent should have been a little more honest with you. He could have told you by phone or email what to expect.
