I hate to break it to the buyer but people have sex in houses all the time! LMAO! Seriously? Put that house in freaking Van Nuys and it's a double bubble!

Candice has a point, if we start disclosing every site where people had sex we would be doing a lot of bragging or disclosing.

Personally, I think if it's something like this that could make a deal go south, I'd rather it was disclosed up front to interested parties so that if this was an issue they would bow out in advance.

That is not a fact that has to be disclose in TN. I advise agents to not disclose anything unless they know it to be a fact or have personal first hand knowledge of it. If that were the case, then the agent might be getting in trouble with their spouse of having first hand personal knowledge.

You are supposed to disclose anything  "material" that may be disturbing to the home buyer, and make them not want the house.

HA, HA, HA...sure of course the agent will disclose...in their dreams.

I could write a book on serious issues that agents do NOT disclose (intentionally)...to me this "sex thing"  should not be a deal breaker, but I would disclose anyway.

Perhaps they'll buy new construction? If the law doesn't require the disclosure and the seller doesn't want you to disclose it, I don't think you can disclose it. I can understand why they would want to back out. I guess everyone knows now.

Of course, the neighbors would greet the new owners with: “I am so delighted to meet you…the new owners of the house where…….went on.”

Nothing will remain hidden, so you might a well fess up and disclose. Better then meeting the new owners in court later on.
