    Is Mold Deadly to Buyers or Sellers

    The question is related to Santa Clarita Home Hunting and the discovery of Mold – does it have to ruin a real estate deal?

    There are certain things that my Santa Clarita Real Estate team and I won’t risk.  One of those things is our Buyers Health.  Both physically and financially.  This is where the “experts” get to give their two cents.

    Killing the Real Estate deal

    Mold doesn’t have to ruin a real estate deal. Whether we like to acknowledge it or not mold is commonplace, even if we don’t always see it. Let’s not forget some of our favorite cheeses have been made delicious by mold. However, when a home inspection turns up mold it can put a damper on the transaction. The good news is that mold can be taken care of and potential buyers don’t have to turn and run away.

    Mold can grow in damp spaces, crawl spaces, basements, as well as walls, floors, and ceilings that have been damaged by leaks and water damage. Sellers who know they have mold could do themselves a favor and have the mold remediated before putting a home on the market.

    What can a SCV Seller do to curtail Mold Growth

    Of course, avoiding mold in the first place is a great way to keep a home healthy. Dehumidifying basements and crawl spaces and making sure a home has good ventilation will help halt mold in its tracks. The important thing to remember is that if you are under contract on a home and mold rears it ugly little spores, it doesn’t have to be the end of your transaction. Mold can be dealt with.

    When you are approaching the Santa Clarita home selling front,  you need the best advice possible.  You will need someone that is in your corner and who will give you the facts.  The last thing a SCV seller needs is to be told that the agent can sell your home for, “One Million Dollars”, when it is only worth $350,000.00.  That “listing by over-promising” does not help the seller.  It causes reprehensible harm to those giving their trust to a Real Estate professional.

    Here are the most recent sold properties in the Santa Clarita Real Estate world.  Each listing was sold by a Top Real Estate professional.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
