I got an appraisal order this week, it was in East St Louis, Illinois. I went there this morning, for the field observation.
About half way through the walk thru I started noticing a smell. I began to walk around each room and wonder where it was coming from. The smell stayed with me regardless of where I walked the smell was just as strong. I wondered if I stepped on a doggie land mine outside. I got outside and still smelled it.
I got in the car and closed the doors and drove away, then I noticed a neighbor burning a tree stump. Of course, that was the smell, worried for nothing.
