Would you buy a house with a musty smelling basement?
A house that I've loved for years is finally on the market. It's gorgeous and the first two main floors are great and in very good condition. However, as soon as you go down to the finished basement, you instantly smell a very must smell. I have asthma and found it very hard to be comfortable in that strong smelling area. Obviously, it makes me wonder if there is a moisture problem. We have to act fast before it's sold, and we will get a home inspector once we have a contract (should it get that far). Just wondering if you guys would totally pass on a house with a bad smelling basement, or approach it as something that can be fixed. One reason we expect it to go fast is because it's in a very desirable area... Would love your advice!
