how can i make my home less desirable?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
We rent. The house is also for sale. Buying it is not an option for us right now.

The land owner is showing our house Wednesday. My home is clean, I dnt want it to be dirty or anything. But what can I do to make these people not want to buy it?

Ideas?

The things that typically turn people off from buying a house are clutter, and if it smells bad.

Burn a piece of plastic.  Apologize for the smell.  Tell them that it started coming and going after the neighbors moved in.

Why would you want to screw over your landlord who wants to sell the property.  What an asshole thing to do.

Yes. Interfer with your landlord's business relationships. Then come tell us how THAT worked out. Lol.

Yes. We can't afford to move anywhere right now. The lease is a week by week deal.


Quoting MrsDavidB25:

Is it because you don't want to move out? Do you have a lease now?

Leave wet clothes in the dryer for a few days so it mildews... Make the home smell like mildew/mold and that will be a deterrent.

be careful. if it gets back to your landlord that you are sabotaging their sale, you could get yourself into a civil suit.

Tell them that you have had 4 snakes in the toilet this past month.

Also tell them you found a snake in your kitchen.

Leave roach motels and rat traps all over the house.
