How do yout hink most buyers react to properties that is known to have mold in it, though it is encapsulated / limited to a specific area? We're looking to buy a property with an oddly shaped roof and mold in the attic surrounding the bedrooms, but are getting different opinions about remediation -- of whether we should remove the entire ceiling in the bedrooms and all of the mold versus remediate the accessible parts and encapsulate the rest.
What do you all think -- should we encapsulate the mold or tear down the ceiling and remove everything? Would we have a hard time selling this in the future if we leave it encapsulated? Would it adversely affect our resale price? Or regardless, should we avoid it if there is simply a history of mold (even if the problem is fixed)? I know there is a lot of hype about this, so I want to proceed carefully.
Thanks for your advice!
