Off the wall question: advertise non-smoking?
My husband asked me about this last night and it struck me that when we consider buying anything used, buying from a non-smoker is not only a plus, but a necessity. I would never buy a car from a smoker or anything upholstered. I have purchased 1 or 2 case-good items from smokers over the years but it's a ton of work to eliminate the smell and I would not bother with the effort anymore.
But what about houses??? I walk into a house where smokers live and that's it, I'm done. We're just not interested in attempting to mitigate that smell - and short of ripping out the HVAC, drywall, etc, I don't think that it can be done and maybe not even then! Other things are advertised all the time as coming from a non-smoking home because that is a plus to many people. But I've never seen it with real estate. Would this be a good thing or is there strong potential to insult a smoker who might be interested in your house?
Curious what your thoughts are on this.
