In addition to the guidelines from the US EPA that we discuss on this page, our recommendations for home buyers are as follows.
Provide disclosure of your test results -usually listed as part of a ‘Seller’s Disclosure’ (aka ‘Residential Real Estate Disclosure Form’). Don’t be surprised if a potential buyer for your home insists on taking a new test. There are a few reasons for this:
An existing radon test is a great tool to help remove ‘question marks’ about your home to a potential buyer. The more information that you provide for a buyer will help them make a well-informed decision about your home. Fewer worries on the part of a buyer have been shown to increase the amount a buyer is likely to offer on a home.
Be sure to save information about your radon test, so that you can answer any questions you receive about the test. Having this information will help you and the buyer interpret the test results.
It is a good idea to make copies of said reports available so that you can readily show the results of the test, and answer the important questions:
EPA recommends every home should be tested for radon.We recommend testing your home before you put it on the market. Any documentation (like a radon test result from an experienced and certified radon professional) is an asset to you as a home seller – and important information about the home you’re selling.
Homebuyers don’t like question marks. Buying a home is one of life’s more stressful events. An accurate test result also will help remove questions and concerns that you may have about your property. If it happens that your radon test shows dangerous levels of radon, you have an opportunity to fix the problem and install a mitigation system BEFORE the home goes on the market.
We look forward to helping you ensure that your home and family are free of dangers from radon.
