In March the woman located her Sacramento-area home on the market for $625,000 with one precondition: The customer must not has become a Trump supporter. She eventually made the residence off world markets for rationales that were not clear.
But now the two-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling is being sold for less than $500,000, leaving some to wonder if the significantly lower rate is at all related to the no-Trump-supporters necessitate, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The original ad, saying Trump backers is no requirement address, had some questioning its legality. The Fair Housing Act, vetoes race, belief, copulation, and national original( among other categories) from kindnes in a transaction, but realise no mention of political affiliation. Yet one advocate claimed the precondition was a violation of a possible buyer’s First Amendment rights.
The woman was nevertheless adamant, telling CBS Sacramento: “When you’re talking about principles, morals, and ethics, it’s particularly, very deep.”
Ryan Lundquist, the real estate blogger who first mentioned the sale on Twitter on Thursday, indicated a reduction in the price had more to do with the original asking price being too high than with a reaction to the woman's demand.
“[ I] t looks like it was priced like it was remodeled, when it really wasn’t, ” Lundquist told the Bee, supplementing: “I’ve never met a buyer that said,' I’m merely gonna buy if the vendor have voted in favour of Bernie( Sanders ). ’ … People simply don’t say that.”
