Radon and Real Estate Transactions
Buying or selling a house is stressful enough without having to worry about radon, but it should be on your checklist! Homeowners who put their house on the market want a fast, trouble-free sale, and buyers want to know that the house they’re purchasing is safe. If a house is on the market, most buyers will request a radon inspection and if an inspector does find elevated levels of radon, don’t panic or despair! It doesn't have to be a deal-breaker, and SWAT Environmental has the solutions to keep your real estate transaction on track. Buyers and sellers can work together with SWAT Environmental to make sure that mitigation is complete and thorough, making the house safe for all future occupants.
Some federally insured mortgage programs, such as the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), require that radon tests and mitigation are done before a house is bought or sold with their mortgage guarantee. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Surgeon General and the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) also strongly recommend both checking for and mitigating any radon problems before a sale. Most states require disclosure of radon levels, and strongly suggest that radon testing and mitigation should be part of any real estate transaction. With so much of your family’s health and financial investment at risk, radon testing and mitigation should be a must item on your “to-do” list!
Test Your Home For Radon
Before you put your house on the market, we can provide fast and accurate radon testing. If high levels are found, we can install a mitigation system that will resolve the problem and give your house a passing grade from any inspector! Just filling in cracks won’t fix your radon problem anymore than filling cracks would solve a water seepage problem. SWAT Environmental can accomplish true radon mitigation and reduce radon to safe levels by attacking radon at the source of emanation. Additionally, having SWAT Environmental install a radon mitigation system in your house shows that you are a smart, responsible homeowner. Being able to show a prospective buyer that you have taken the time and trouble to ensure safe levels of radon is a positive selling point for your house.
Install a Radon Mitigation System
If you are a buyer and find the house of your dreams, test it for radon before you close the deal. If there are elevated levels of radon, don’t worry, you don’t have to keep looking at other houses! Since radon is directly tied to rock and soil conditions, any house in the same area will also be at risk for the same radon levels. SWAT Environmental can install a mitigation system that will provide safe levels and eliminate the risks of radon, no matter what home you choose. Be real estate savvy! Be safe! Protect your family’s health and your real estate investment. Contact SWAT Environmental to make radon mitigation part of your real estate agreement!Get A Quote!
