Re/Max Oceanview Realty Weekly Report | Nov 9 - Nov 15, 2021

A potential buyer may be satisfied with the condition and location of a home, but they may avoid purchasing it because of an event or circumstance occurring in or near the property. Perhaps the home was the site of a suicide or there’s a known party house next door. These are examples of a stigma, which can affect market value and makes the home harder sell. The significance of the stigma is impossible to determine, as it will vary with a buyer’s values, perceptions and beliefs. That’s why in BC a seller is not required to independently disclose a stigma. However, disclosure is required if a potential buyer asks about a specific situation. For instance, if the seller knows there was a suicide in the home they do not need to independently disclose. But if the buyer asks about it, then the seller must disclose what they know.
