We're trying to quit...
Its his house, and he should be able to smoke....
Does the lingering smell of cigarette odors impact the dollar value of a home's sale price?
Is repainting and new broadloom enough to change the smell?
What is your situation?
More than half of respondents — 56 per cent — said most buyers are less likely to purchase a home where people have smoked, and 27 per cent said most buyers are actually unwilling to buy a home where people have smoked.
In Canada, an estimated 15 per cent of homes have at least one regular smoker.
The study found that almost half, or 44 per cent of respondents, said smoking in the home affects resale value.
Of these, one in three said smoking in the home may lower the value by 10 to 19 per cent and a further one in three said it may lower the value by 20 to 29 per cent. http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/story/2013/04/16/business-smoking-housing.html?cmp=rss
As realtors we all have had properties with smokers; I recommend vinegar in pie plates placed around the property to suppress odors. BUT they keep smoking...
How do you handle it?
