I have seen many intake vents (high on the walls) that most sellers overlook, as they have to look up.   Always the corners of each room.

It's not overlooked, just simply very hard and mostly unsuccessful cleaning of the shower/tub grout.

All those plastic pieces found in 20 year old houses that long ago left the white spectrum. The very, very worst is that 1978 NuTone intercom controllers.
