Home Buyers & Sellers

If You’re Buying A Home…

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that you know the indoor radon level of any home you consider buying.  Ask the seller for their radon test results. If the home has a radon-reduction system, ask the seller for any information they have about the system. If the test results are over two years old, the EPA recommends doing another test.

If the home has not yet been tested, you should have the house tested.

If You Are Selling a Home…

Most real estate transactions place the obligation to test for radon on the buyer. This generally comes up during the home inspection. Even though the discovery of high radon is a completely correctable issue, it can spook potential buyers and provide a legal out to an otherwise secure offer. Sellers who wish to test for and mitigate potentially high radon levels before an inspection can avoid this issue altogether. Call us to discuss your testing options before it becomes problem that could tie up the sale of your home!

I Have Tested my Home for Radon and the levels are High…

EPA recommends that you take actions to reduce your home’s indoor radon levels if your radon result is 4pCi/L or higher. If elevated levels are found during the real estate transaction, the buyer and seller should discuss the timing and costs of radon reduction. The cost of making repairs to reduce radon levels depends on how your home was built and other factors. Most homes can be fixed for between $750-$900. Contact us and we will be happy to come out and provide you with a detailed quote to fix your radon problem.
