While some home buyers and investors may look for a property that is in need of major repairs, most people do not want to deal with anything more than minor cosmetic fixes when purchasing a home. Few things can cause a bigger headache or drain on the wallet for a new homeowner than discovering water damage and mold growth in their home after the sale is complete

No one wants to buy a house with a mold problem. Unfortunately, these sneaky little spores aren’t always easy to detect. If you’re looking to purchase real estate , learn how to detect mold in homes, get the seller to disclose mold issues, and negotiate around any mold problems that come to light in the course of the sale.

Here are some common places in a home where mold is likely to take hold:

  • around leaking pipes, windows, or roofs (the constant supply of water gives mold spores the start they need).that have flooded and haven’t been thoroughly dried
  • basements or other places that have flooded and haven’t been thoroughly dried
  • tightly sealed buildings (common with new construction), which trap excess moisture inside.
  • homes with poor ventilation, numerous over-watered houseplants, and housekeeping habits that ignore obvious dampness and don’t include airing the place out.
