It's important for anyone interested in buying and selling a home to know that almost every real estate transaction can be saved when mold is discovered. Buying and selling a home with mold is not only possible, but it's often much easier and cheaper to solve than most people think. There are a lot of factors to consider when thinking about buying a home that has mold, and running in the other direction isn't always the best option. In fact, more often than not, mold problems can be solved.
Not only that, the presence of mold can put you in a good negotiating position as a buyer, often resulting in getting a better deal on the house. That said, if you know it's there, it's best to remove the mold before you put the house up for sale. For example, seeing mold in an inspection and mitigating it immediately before moving into a home has little or no adverse long-term health effects, but living in a home with lots of mold for decades can.
