Internet shocked by what potential buyers did to bathe during home viewing

It’s always disgusting when someone leave the hair in the shower-especially when that person is a stranger.

When TikTok user @fortdefiance put her home on the market, a sneaky shower was probably the last thing she expected from potential buyers. In a clip shared on July 1, the owner explained that someone watching the house decided to take the tub for a test drive.

“I just got home from a screening,” she said in the video. “Go into the bathroom and there’s a stain on the floor. I know I just cleaned that. Someone got into the tub, which I thoroughly cleaned.”

Fortunately, she saw the funny side of the situation, bursting into laughter. However, the bathroom wasn’t the only room they decided to try before buying.

“I’m pretty sure someone got into my bed,” she continued, before pointing to a bench that was also crooked. Further exploration showed that viewers actually tried out all three beds, as well as the couch.

“I hope you had fun,” she laughed as she concluded her video.

Rising mortgage rates and fewer homes for sale mean it’s harder than ever for low- and middle-income people to buy property in the United States. The pandemic has compounded the problem, with remote work forcing people to reassess their choice of housing and increasing demand.

However, some experts have predicted a possibility housing market crash this summer, caused by soaring house prices and a 5% mortgage rate. Although there are two-thirds fewer homes available than in June 2020, the number of listings is increasing. Nevertheless, the average price of a property in the United States is $450,000, 31.4% more than in June 2020 and 16.9% more than the same period last year.

TikTok users were appalled by guests’ lack of respect for a stranger’s property, with the video receiving more than 23,000 likes and over 400 comments.

“I would have been CRAZY as hell!” writes Mississippi Queen. “What else could have been spoiled that you didn’t notice right away.”

“When will people realize that the projections are about the HOUSE and not the furniture in the house!” said Oh Bawlz.

“What was going on in Goldilocks?!” commented user 3736535295072, referring to the iconic fairy tale of a little girl who takes over a house from a bear family.

Christina Ellis said: “Honestly, I might be a little dramatic, but I would feel slightly violated. Especially in my bed.”

Some users have recommended reporting visitors to the agent, with Amy M writing: “As a real estate agent it’s 100% on the agent showing it to let their clients know what is/isn’t is not acceptable.” Ask your agent to call his agent as soon as possible. “

BigJoe agreed, commenting, “I would call your agent and complain that it’s not very professional, you don’t know what people are spreading.”

Others shared their own nightmare stories, like Saundra Avery, who wrote: “When we were selling our house, people were sitting on furniture, our beds, playing with my kids’ toys. That’s what that time everyone had to sign a waiver.”

“We had a screening yesterday and someone left a banana that was left a bite in our master’s floor,” Kennadi Holt said.

While Lexi Hobgood commented: “I got one showing them going through my stuff and pulling bottles of water out of our storage area (nearly a dozen) and thanking the camera as they left. “

At least Fortdefiance’s problems were limited to the potential buyers and not the agent. Of them real estate agents were sued by a client in December 2021, after allegedly using the list as a sex stamp, while another agent was criticized for leaving the key in the front door of a salesman’s house after a visit.

Newsweek contacted @fortdefiance for comment.
