Hi Seema,
There is no tool that I know of but tell tale signs are usually the clue. As you suggested the smell of a basement is one way to tell (and pretty acurately in most cases). Also water marks and stains on floors and walls as well as rust spots on anything metal that is in the basement. Asking, today, is a way as well because realtors are mandated by law to answer all questions honestly. Just ask. Notice the neighborhood and the lay of the land outside. Does it look like water will end up in the basement? Common sense can be a BIG help. Good luck.....MJH
