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 resolve 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, most of the time, mold problems can be solved.
Not only that, the presence of mold can place you in a good negotiating position as a buyer, often resulting in getting a better deal on the house. For example, seeing mold on an inspection and mitigating it immediately before moving to a home has few or no long-term adverse health effects, but living in a house with a lot of mold for decades can. That said, if you know it's there, it's best to remove the mold before you list the house for sale.
