UFFI is a substance that if improperly installed can emit formaldehyde gas (as does new particle-board furniture & cupboards, carpetting and the hunman body)
After a period of time (no matter how poorly-installed) it goes inert.
Some people are more acutely sensitive to formaldehyde gas than others.
It hasn’t been installed in a long time in Canada and now it’s just a “stigma”
Like a death in a house, former grow op/ chem lab, backing onto a hydro-corridor …. some people just will not buy it.
Others will buy it at a discount (often as a rental, not to live in)
Because of the diminished demand and the fact that you (and every registrant who knows about it) will have to disclose the fact … you will sell for less.
If you’re thinking about buying a UFFI house …. ask yourself it it’s worth the bother.
Hence the diminished demand.
