The "M" word everyone fearsI have no idea why this came out sideways, any way to fix it would be appreciated. It was fine when I imported it.No one wants to hear or see the word "Mold" in their home inspection, but it happens doesn't it?Mold remediation can be very expensive.

Many years ago, I showed a condo that was listed in the MLS to a buyer.  The photos depicted the unit as it was when the seller lived there, before he began his "remodeling" project. The price shown in MLS was fair based on the condition shown in the photos.Upon opening the door, the first thing that we noticed was  .... nothing! There was absolutely nothing in the condo. No sheetrock, no interior doors, no HVAC system, nothing.  We found the seller's "price list" for add ons (add ons that the seller was going to complete himself):Property to be sold as is, where is, as any empty shell.Option #1: walls & doors & ceilings - additional $10,000Option #2: floors - additional $6,000Option #3: bathroom fixtures - additional $10,000Option #4: HVAC and ductwork - additional $10,000Option #5: re...
