Client, clients agent and seller present.
Seller is a car salesman.
Well maintained 1968, split level with a crawl.
(Only 40 pics)
Left crawl for last.
First thing out of my seller is the stains you see are from some old carpet I threw away.
There were tell tale stains/efflorescence at numerous lower course masonry blocks. Between the unfinished crawl and finished areas there was erosion, rotted wood and signs of past leaking.
Listing agent and seller were on me that these are old stains and not active.
The exterior drainage leaders, extensions were all open and poorly sealed.
I advised my client to obtain estimates pertaining to the stains.
I am not buying the info from the car salesman, the agent can go refer her usual inspectors.
My client can rest easy if he knows the extent of the water stains.
