No, and I bet the reason they're removing it now is because property condition is quite subjective. I bet there was always a lot of dissent over it. They were probably tired of hearing about it.

However, someone suggested 'triple mint' could be a condition indicator.

Yep. I can see why that fields 'gotta go."

Never heard of such a thing - and I can see it being an issue as what one person thinks the condition of a property is may be quite different than another.

No but, many agents include the Disclosures in our MLS for other agents' access. I would think this could be quite the subjective answer so, I don't know that I would WANT to have this requirement entered by an agent. 

Removing that criteria could be removing liability for your members, Dean Cacioppo!

Dean ~ Here in Northern Virginia we have an optional field that runs the gamut from shell, As-Is condition, rehab potential, to shows well.  Most of the time it is helpful, but as several other comments have noted, condition is subjective.

Nope. Like grading diamonds under the lupe, so much to cover when there is a house or structure attached to the land to assign a number. Could have new roof, heating system but damage from before with ceilings and the freeze up makes you scratch your head. The appraiser says rotten, fair, fair plus, good minus, OMG best I've ever seen to date, etc. The images and your warning that they may cause a stomach reaction tell the tale of what the heck happened here... Videos don''t lie either as you pan the room where it looks like Stephen King made a movie. The good, the bad, the ugly. (That clint eastwood eerie sound) This is what you are getting boys and girls.
