Would you buy a house with a hot tub in the basement?
We have found a lovely house that has all the features we would like to have except one - its basement has a large (3-4 people) hot tub and a small sauna.
The reason, I don't like this feature is I am worried about mold. I don't think we would use this feature much.
The house itself is ~30 years old, but I am not sure when the hot tub was installed. While there was no pungent smell when we visited the house, my gut keeps telling me that there has to be some mold. There is an exhaust fan in the room that apparently takes the hot air out.
Am I worrying unnecessarily? Also does the resell value of house go down with this kind of feature?
