Due to the nature of the illness, potential MCS buyers/renters will need to stay in a home overnight, or for an extended period, before committing to a purchase or long-term lease. Doing so puts the homeowner at risk for potential contamination of the space. Are you willing to do this? Yes
Potential buyer/renter can stay overnight in home for 1 week before committing to rent, at a fee of $500. There is no charge to come and sit around a while.
