Honesty In Auctions...pets and smoking home

Ever since I started selling on Ebay, I've been honest in my auctions regarding my home not being pet free or smoke free.

Do you think this is a good thing or a bad thing?

I've been told by others that I shouldn't say anything at all about it, but I don't think that's fair to potential buyers. They say I'm cutting my chances of sales by putting it in there.

But I'd rather be honest than to have an unhappy buyer, you know?

Special items, like Longaberger, I don't even store at home. I know how important that is to collectors, and smoke smell devalues the baskets. And dolls. And well, anything that can permanently absorb the odors.

But anyway...I digress...

What do you folks think about this? Does it matter to you? Thanks in advance for your opinions!
