Woman tells realtor she won’t sell home to anyone who voted Trump; but wait, her reason is hilarious

A California woman listed her family home for sale but already knew what kind of buyer she was not selling it to.

The Sacramento homeowner gave her realtor one clear stipulation when she decided to sell the home that had been in her family for decades,  KOVR-TV reported.


“I told her [the realtor] that I didn’t want her to sell it to a Trump supporter,” said the woman who asked the station not to use her real name for fear of retaliation.

The Fair Housing Act does not list political party affiliation as one of the seven protected classes which stipulate that it is against the law to refuse to sell or rent property to someone based on “race, color, religion, sex, familial status, or national origin.”

“That’s an unlawful contractual term that infringes the freedom of association and first amendment rights,” attorney Allen Sawyer told KOVR. “People have a right to believe what they want to believe and they shouldn’t be restricted from purchasing property based on that.”

A seller, however, is free to discuss a request such as this during a sale.

“We can ask somebody how they voted, but they don’t have to tell us,” realtor Elizabeth Weintraub said, adding that this “no Trump supporter” request was a first for her.

Home appraiser Ryan Lundquist cautioned that the homeowner’s unusual request may be self-defeating.

“Thirty nine percent of voters voted for Donald Trump in the Sacramento region. That’s an absolute fact,” he told  KOVR.

But for this California liberal, that makes no difference.

“When you’re talking about principals, morals, and ethics, it’s very, very deep,” the homeowner said.

She found little support on Twitter where most users were left scratching their heads.
