We live in New England. My husband and I have five children and all have special needs. We spent a great deal of time looking for a home when we moved. We were also looking for a home where my in laws (parents) could live with us. My father is disabled and medically fragile – the home had to be perfect. Many of us have respiratory issues that are already compromised – a huge issue for us would have been mold in our home – we knew that right up front.
We found what we considered to be the perfect home for our multigenerational family – a home that allowed each group to have their own space yet we were all still living together. We looked at homes with in-law apartments but that wasn’t quite what we were looking for. We wanted them to not have to change their standard of living for a much smaller home.
Our house is a very large home – older home. We did have inspections prior to purchasing it and did all that we could to make sure we weren’t buying a home with a mold issue.
We were very fortunate – but this is not the case for all homes.
They have been voted BEST in the market for 20 consecutive years. They know how to do it all right! I would prefer to have the protection against the health problems associated with mold in the walls of our home.
