5 home enviro hazards realtors should know - greenworks environmental llc allenwood, nj

As a realtor, it was imperative that you are aware of any issues a house may have before you show it. The best way to detect potential problems in a home on the market is to review disclosure documents and speak directly from the sellers. It may take some deep digging and a little intuition, but you ca observe clues indicating a property may have some serious issues.

Here are five home hazard clues that should raise your antennas:

1. Leaking Pipes

Got leaking pipes? Leaking pipes are easy to fix, but persistent water intrusion is usually a sign that it’s not a leaking pipe.

2. No Sump Pump

A sump pump chamber with no sump pump is not an indication of a dry basement.

3. Foul Smells

Foul smells, like rotting garbage is a good indication that something is just not right.

4. Mold Issue
