Selling older home with water in crawl

Hey all, I have an older home built in 1950. After rain, there will be some water in the crawl space. When I bought the home I had foundation inspected thoroughly to make sure water hadn’t created an issues and that there wasn’t any foundation or mold problems. Well I decided to put it on the market and I had an offer within 3 days, and on the disclosure I put obviously water in crawl after heavy rain because I will not be dishonest about any large purchase like this. The buyers agent asked about it and I just told them that was the issue. We’re now entering the inspection contingency (we did appraisal first in this deal, backwards i know.)

Do you think buyers agent will advise them against purchasing home due to small amount of water in crawl? If anything I could have sump/ French drain installed but it’s only ever been an issue during spring rains tbh and it’s dry the rest of the year. From my understanding most homes in my area will have this issue especially ones that are as old as mine. Growing up in homes in this area it was always an issue that came up from time to time so I didn’t think much of it.

How would you handle this as a buyer? Is this something that is a major deterrent to sale in your opinion?

Thank you all for your input !
