What will happen to the home if nothing done to repair to an ongoing deflection?

This totally depends on the amount of deflection and the structure around it. If you plan on having tile, deflection is a bad thing. If you don't have heavy furniture or house elephants, it's not such a big deal.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

What exactly is deflecting and where? It might be nothing or it might be a sign of a serious problem.

Deflection in a sub floor is pretty normal. Most flooring manufactures will have a max. Deflection for their flooring. I would say for most hardwoods it is not as much of a deal as the wood floor will stiffen things up .for tile floors it is a much bigger deal. How much do you have?
