What Realtors Should Know About Mold

It is only natural to be concerned about mold when buying a home. A home is a huge investment and you will be highly mistaken to not be concerned about mold. It could be a deal breaker for some. Mold is not only potentially dangerous, but it is unsightly, can grow foul, and eventually lead to major structural and foundation problems. As a real estate agent, you’ve probably no doubt had your fair share of run-ins with the fungus.

With that said, how much do you really know about mold? Would you be surprised to learn that not all growths are dangerous? Some mold growths don’t even necessarily need to delay a sale, but how could you possibly convey this to a home-buying customer?

Keep Clients Informed

No responsible realtor wants to conceal information from a potential home buyer. This is especially true when it comes to something like mold growth. Although many times overplayed, mold can be devastatingly dangerous to the inhabitant’s health. You wouldn’t want your clients to fall deathly ill from mold shortly after moving in. This would not only damage your reputation, but it could lead to a major lawsuit.

It is always best to be upfront and honest about mold. Mold doesn’t need to be a deal breaker either. Despite what many have been led to believe, homeowners can safely live in a home with mold when they take advantage of the right professional remediation company.

Don’t Let Mold Be A Deal Breaker

Of course, any homeowner is going to be hesitant or at least a little concerned when buying a home with mold present. A buyer that is properly informed about mold will know their options. The only problem is that most people aren’t properly educated when it comes to mold. They’ve been led to believe that even the slightest presence is highly dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.

Yes, mold is dangerous and can be lethal in large doses. However, what most people don’t understand is that they are exposed to small amounts of mold regularly. Most homes already have small, trace amounts of spores in the air. You just never pick up on it because they aren’t visible and don’t pose any health concerns. It isn’t until they start collecting and growing that they become dangerous.

When informed of the facts, many homeowners might become more than accepting of buying a home with slight mold growth.
