Radon and Real Estate Transactions
Buying or selling a house in Maine is stressful enough as it is without having to worry about radon, but it should be on your checklist! Homeowners who place their house on the market in Maine want a fast, trouble-free sale and buyers want to know that the house is safe. If a house is on the market, most buyers will want a radon inspection. If an inspector does find elevated levels of radon, don’t panic or despair. It doesn't have to be a deal-breaker in a real-estate transaction. Radon mitigation can solve the problem. Buyers and sellers can work together to make sure that mitigation makes the house safe for future occupants.
