While OHD allows people to freely discuss the homes history and architecture a comment policy is necessary to avoid an unpleasant environment and curb misinformation.

OHD reserves the right to edit or not allow comments for any reason without notification. Comments that do not add value to the conversation in a positive manner or are not understandable may not appear publicly.

I know these rules are long and don’t expect you to memorize them, just use your sense on what you say and how you say it. “What were they thinking putting up that wallpaper…” is different than “I’d change the wallpaper.” There are ways to say what you’d change without wording it rudely.

absolutely not allowed Politics (as in current politics, people or topics.) Offensive or threatening language. Rude and disparaging comments about the home, decor or updates.

Rants or only negative comments about the agents description or photography skills.

Setting a value on repair and restoration costs. Pricing the home itself including “over priced” comments.

“This house is haunted…”, “…orbs”. Owners don’t appreciate their home labeled as haunted. The exception is if you link to legitimate news articles where the owner mentions it.

ALL CAP COMMENTS and missing punctuation. GoFundMe links. Soliciting for business. Fake emails. This is an English language based site so comments must be in English.

Respect each other. Not everyone is going to agree but keep it civil. No name calling, no belittling.

Not all neighborhoods are top notch but if referring to crime it must be about the immediate neighborhood supported by a link to a neighborhood crime map or if you are clear that you are an active resident of the neighborhood.

If you declare a home is in a flood zone, go to FEMA.gov, search the address then post the link. Otherwise your comment will not be approved.

“…electrical/foundation/roof/mold, etc” may be discussed, IF it’s been noted by the agent or owner but you cannot discuss the reason unless it’s been noted by the agent or owner. If you’ve seen the home in person you must provide photos showing the damages you want to mention but you cannot include repair quotes. This rule is enforced because what we see may not be what you think it is, the problem could have been fixed and too many other reasons why it’s a bad idea to “inspect” a home using listing photos.
