Is mold more likely to be a problem in waterfront homes than in homes away from the water?

Mold requires a moisture source to grow – usually a pipe leak, ground water intrusion, or a crack in the building envelope such as around windows or flashing. The presence of water in the nearby river should not increase the likelihood of mold in a well-built house. Of course, if a house is in a flood zone or floods during storms this would be a serious concern. Check with your “Mr. Waterfront” Buyer Expert to find out if a home has a history of flooding or if there is evidence of mold from other causes.

Testimonials The Mr. Waterfront Team sold our very unique home in Annapolis for us. We went through a series of price changes and ended up with a difficult buyer but throughout the process we still had a very positive experience with the Mr. Waterfront Team! Personally, that means a great deal to me! It's easy to be happy with a realtor when everything goes well but it's an even greater relief to go through a difficult sale and still be so pleased with the team. So pleased, that we actually BOUGHT our next home from them! Ted N, Chestnut Ave, Annapolis read more...
