    “The insides of the kitchen cabinets were dirty, there was mold on a door, I had to clean everything (I have the photos).”

    The musty smell downstairs was very strong. The floor in front of the main door is very slippery and dangerous when it rains. The house is very nice and other than reported, it was clean. Kitchen well equipped, nice sofa and tv.
