It can be a big deal in selling a home, or in the case of this article, in complying with local laws requiring removal. When I was a Realtor I had people refuse to even look inside a home when they saw bamboo on the outside, and they are not alone. It can be brutally hard to remove. My personal experience with it, fortunately in a rental rather than something I owned, puts me in the no way category.

Just one more thing to look for when looking to buy.
