Can you sell a home with water damage?

The short answer is yes. But there are a few things you might want to keep in mind when selling a water-damaged property.

Water damage can lead to costly repairs and possible health issues that can cause serious harm. Left untreated, mold will begin to form and spread to surrounding areas. As you may already know, mold and mildew thrive in damp dark areas. If it’s left untreated, the mold will continue to spread and cause far more damage, which could end up costing you more in repairs.

If you wish to do the repairs yourself and list it with a realtor, you have to make sure you remediate the issue completely. If the remediation is not done correctly, you risk having the mold come back later and causing health issues for the next owners.

The goal with any type of water damage whether it be from a severe flood or pipe burst is to address it sooner rather than later. But if you don’t have the time, money or simply don’t want to deal with the hassle of doing the repairs yourself then selling through traditional means may be tough.
