1. Radon- Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive, carcinogenic gas and can sometimes be found in homes, mostly in the basement or the crawl space, and is known to cause lung cancer. It can be found throughout the entire home, too.



2.Image titleBlack Mold - if you're set on a home with this in it’s inspection report, you can ask the seller to hire a professional to get rid of the mold, and then have it tested again before closing.






3. Termites - Any Image titlehome with termite damage won’t be an easy sell. And fixing the damage isn’t cheap! If the house has termite damage, a structural engineer will have to inspect the framing and see if it needs additional support.

4. Asbestos -. Homes built before 1975 could have asbestos in the roof penetration sealant, the roofing felt, older tiling. If you have this very serious issue, get an asbestos abatement contractor before closing.

  • 5. Exposed Wiring - This is not a huge issue necessarily, but it can be a safety hazard. Old school wiring is more of a concern! 






If you're interested in selling your home, and have any of these potential problems, it wouldn't be a bad idea to go ahead and get it fixed before you put your home on the market. You want potential buyers to feel confident about purchasing your home. But you can also strike a deal with a buyer.
