Was mold remediation ever completed in your home? Yes, see above
To the best of your knowledge, is there currently high levels of mold or existence of allergenic, pathogenic, or toxigenic molds in the home? Not to my knowledge, nor to my nose and the noses of other EIs

Known vermin infestations: n/a
Homestead animals: n/a
Local flora that might be a problem (e.g., juniper, pine, cedar, etc.) and worst times of year for pollen counts: This is Florida, but this area seems less allergenic than most of the rest of the state

Other potential toxic exposures
Were pesticides ever used in the house, or outside the house and around the property, by you or by former owners? It was treated for fleas about seven months ago
Has a pet that was treated with Frontline, wore a flea collar, or had other pesticides applied to it ever lived or entered the home? Not for years. However the park is treated with pesticide 4 times a year and once in a while the area is street-sprayed for mosquitos. I would suggest rinsing home off and wetting down yard after treatment or spraying. This is practically unavoidable in Florida, but the ocean is nearby to de-tox.
Has the home site been checked for radon and other potentially hazardous elements? n/a
Is the house currently fragrance free, and has it always been? I don’t think so for last few years, but don’t know about tenant who just left.

Why are you selling the home? n/a
If you are selling (vs. renting), are you charging a premium over the likely appraisal cost for the special materials? If so, are you willing to carry a second note/loan on the house if the bank will not give me a mortgage at the price you wish to sell the house? No premium
Who are the closest neighbors and what are their potentially MCS-triggering habits? The closest neighbors are 20 feet away
Are the neighbors MCS aware/compassionate? Will they complain if I use a clothesline to air dry my clothes or leave items outside to offgas? I think they would complain but there is a closed and covered driveway and a sun room

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 up to 2 nights before committing to purchase/lease at a fee of $50/night
