What Does This Look Like, To You?

What does this look like to you?

If you are trying to sell your house, this will definitely turn some people off.  Remove the air conditioner from the crawl space door.  Unless of course, you are trying to ruin the sale of your home and trying to sell your home.

If you guessed an air conditioner, you guessed correctly. An air conditioner in a Crawl Space Door, at that. 😉 

When I got to this inspection, I was like, what?  I could hardly believe my eyes.  The crawl space vents were open and not closed.  So, do you think this was helping?

The homeowner was trying to sell his house.  When I saw this, I had to inform and educate the homeowner that this, might turn off, a buyer.

I would not recommend this at all.  Just open your crawl space vents and get some air circulating in the crawl space and figure out, what is creating the moisture issue and clean up the Mold.

Yikes...I've been around (in real estate) for decades, yet I've never...even encountered anything like that!

Linda,


When I first saw this, I had to do a double take. I had never seen this in 34 years and the home owner was actually proud of it. I had to school the home owner but it sure made for a cool inspection. Smiles.

I am amazed at the amount of people who do not want to spend money on an inspection to know what is going on but they will spend money on repairs, after they buy the home.  I guess some people have more money that they know what to do with.  Smiles.
