If you were selling your home would you allow someone to buy it if you knew they were gay?

    I had a friend sell his house to a guy whom he later learned was gay after the sell: he evicted them as soon as they didn't pay for a month after learning about it. I was curious on other people's reasonings for this situation.

    Why not? How is orientation at all relevant to a real estate transaction?

    No matter the arrangement of the tenant given by the Owners of the property.
    Being deliquent on rent has discretionary consequences.

    If I had a home to sell, I would have absolutely no problem in selling it to anyone who needed it.
    Whether they were gay, bisexual, trans, straight or otherwise, my only wish is that they would have a roof over their heads, a secure place to live and somewhere they can call home.

    My question didn't have anything to do with who the buyer was. First, he says it's a home sale but then says they were being evicted by the seller. The only way that could happen is if the seller was financing the buyer.

    The only circumstantial arrangement I'm able to find relevant to the OP. Is where an owner of a single home rents rooms.
    Which is a situation that leaves the tenants in a vulnerable situation. Especially when they are desperate for shelter.

    Word of mouth solidity is a rare comfort given by owners of land and property. Those that fail to consider their position to be a gift of charity are the ones that forget to give Glory to The Potter.

    But that doesn't fit with the thread's title,
    except for @Hank77's example above.

    I am in agreement with those who see no issue with selling the home to whoever, it is a business deal, not a marriage proposal.

    If a person does not pay their mortgage payment, that is the bank's concern not mine. AFAIK banks do not evict people after only one late payment. And they do not care one iota about the sexual proclivities of those that owe them money.

    Yes, as a real estate license holder it would be against the rules for me not to sell it based on that. Also, their private sins are not mine to judge, I would sell the home and leave it to them. The same goes for renting, it is illegal in many jurisdictions to evict or deny renting a home to someone based on this issue.
