basement wall is scaring off buyers
Hello- I need your advice. I am the second owner of a ranch with a full unfinished basement that has a wall that has been coated in an epoxy type material. It is scaring off buyers-I am doing flat fee MLS/by owner. It looks wet, but when you touch it your realize it's a sealant . I questioned the original owner about the wall and she said that there was a bit of discoloration coming in through the concrete blocks that the builder assured her was normal, but she wanted them to seal it just to be sure. She is a nervous nell and had them do all kinds of extra things like that. The builder has a great rep but is huge and when I called them they said my file had been moved to storage and may or may not be able to be retrieved.
The wall is a non issue. Basement is dry as a bone, but buyers understandably are freaked by it. What should I do? Should I hang a sign explaining? Have an inspector look at it and sign something saying it's fine? ??
