I showed homes yesterday in Washington Park and ran into another What You Don’t Want To See On A Home Tour example. Can anyone tell me what this is?


Nope, Scarface doesn’t live there, that is not what it looks like. We saw this powdery substance on the chair and wondered what was going on and then my buyer looked up and saw this:


You can see that there is some active water damage going on in the ceiling above. Clearly this is new to the seller and I am pretty certain that they are not even aware that there was a leak. So in this case, it IS something the you DO want to see during a home tour. It is something that can be easily fixed and not necessarily a “deal killer”. The sellers were informed and the problem solved. But not knowing about it during the home tour could have been bad…

Sometimes you see these little leaks turn into big problems, like the home we saw 3 homes later!

No kidding, this happened to the same buyer on the same home tour! We seemed to be attracting homes with water issues that day! This one looks a bit more serious and this would qualify as a WYDWTSOAHT…
