Eight years of OHD has taught me a comment policy is necessary to avoid an unpleasant environment and curb misinformation. These were recurrent enough or caused confusion in the past that they warranted rules.

The rules look long but it’s down to: don’t be rude, don’t be vague, clarity between your opinion and actual fact.

OHD reserves the right to delete, edit or not approve comments for any reason without notification. If your comment does not add value to the conversation in a positive manner, it may not appear publicly.

Comments do not appear publicly right away. By commenting you agree that the comment is of your own opinion and do not hold OHD or other commenters responsible for any consequences that may result in said comment. You further agree to all comment rules and a pattern of breaking the rules will result in being banned.

No politics, offensive, inappropriate or threatening language. Respect each others opinions, not everyone is going to agree but don’t be rude to someone with views different from yours.

Disparaging, snarky and rude comments about the home, decor or updates will not be allowed. Rants or rudeness about or to the agent or owner is not allowed (this includes bad photography, poorly written descriptions or other reasons why the agent should be fired but that’s between the agent and the owner, we are here to discuss the home itself.)

Not all neighborhoods are top notch but too often people leave a comment that don’t actually know the area or are too vague to determine fact vs. opinion. If you are referring to crime it must be about the immediate neighborhood and supported by crime maps or news article. If the home is in a flood zone you must link to the most recent flood zone map available.

“…electrical/foundation/roof, etc” may be discussed, IF it’s been noted by the agent or owner as a problem or shown in incredibly clear photos. If you’ve seen the home in person you must provide photos showing any damages you want to tell us about.

Setting a value on repairs estimates or the price of the home is not allowed. This rule is here because people throw out numbers or state “overpriced” without knowing the area, how the agent/owner has decided on the price, photos rarely give the whole picture on repairs needed.

No ALL CAPS, use punctuation.

“Is this house haunted?” or “orbs” comments will automatically be deleted. This rule is here because owners don’t appreciate their home labeled as haunted. The exception is if the owner has mentioned it in articles or leaves a comment about it.

No GoFundMe links, no soliciting for business. Emails will not be shared but must be valid.
