The word “Mold” can invoke fear in buyers, sellers and real estate agents. Potential buyers are becoming aware of it and have a concern, sellers don’t want to deal with it and real estate agents are stuck in the middle. Mold can be the cause of delayed or lost sales in real estate transactions – especially if it’s discovered during an inspection. However, mold doesn’t have to end in a lost sale of property.
To avoid lost real estate sales, arm yourself with facts about mold. Explain to your clients that not all molds are toxic, contrary to what they may have heard. It’s important to always explain that mold only grows where it has access to moisture. If just one spot in a home has mold, that doesn’t mean your client needs to tear apart the entire house. If you are selling a house with mold, you can avoid pitfalls by consulting a licensed mold remediation specialist, like Maven Construction Group.
