Can I sell a house with Mold Problems?
If your house has mold issues, what should you do? Do you have to remove the mold? Can a house be sold with existing mold issues? How likely is the house to sell if it has mold issues? Listed below are a few different approaches you can take when trying to sell a house that has existing mold issues.
- Use a Realtor to Sell Your House – If you try to sell your house in the traditional real estate market, a realtor is more than likely going to want you to fix the mold problem in your home before purchase. Mold, in any amount, can be extremely hazardous to your health. Health issues caused by a mold infestation range from serious conditions, such as cancer, to smaller problems such as lung issues, headaches, etc. A first time home buyer or someone looking for a family home is not going to want to purchase a property that has mold issues. In this situation, you are all but required to remove mold before selling your home.
- For Sale by Owner – With this type of sale, you control whether or not mold is removed. However, any potential buyer that’s interested in your house is going to either want you to take thousands off the price of the property to compensate for mold or, they’ll require the mold to be removed before it’s sold. You can reject any further costs related to the sale of your home, but that could mean losing a potential buyer. With this form of sale, finding buyers can be extremely difficult.
- Sell to a Cash Home Buyer – Our team doesn’t require you to put effort into the sale of your property. If your house has mold, there’s a chance that we’ll be interested.
