Radon Testing in Real Estate
Your real estate investment may be the biggest transaction you'll ever make - in fact for most of the population its the only transaction they'll make of such size. Naturally you'll want to protect yourself not only from unforeseen costs - which every home owner knows can add up quickly - but also ensure the home you and your family are moving into is safe.
Keep in mind in your search, all homes can be mitigated.
There are plenty of reasons you should test for radon prior to purchasing your home:
- High radon can be a great negotiating tool. In fact in the vast majority of cases it's the seller who will fully pay the cost of bringing your home down below Health Canada's radon action level.
- You don't want to be stuck buying a home where mitigation costs are exorbitant. Mitigations for most houses are affordable, but every home is unique as are the challenges associated with mitigating them. Better to know up front what the costs are.
- You want to move your family into a radon safe home, or take action quickly to limit exposure if the house has high radon levels.
What Should I Do If High Radon Is Disovered?
First, don't panic. high radon doesn't mean you have to let the house of your dreams pass. Many buyers negotitate the price of a mitigation system or have a system installed prior to finalizing their real estate agreement. Radon mitigation is affordable and relatively easy to complete as far as home renovations are concerned.
Remember, this is a short term measurement and a long term measurement is needed to confirm any mitigation decisions.
