Welcome to our blog!
We want you to be an informed homebuyer, and each blog post is a question that we have answered for our friends and customers over the years. Hope they help you make a good choice for your next home.

  1. Bullet Will a radon mitigation system scare off buyers when I am ready to sell the home? - Some homebuyers will consider it a plus, others won’t care, and a few “scientifically challenged” buyers will think they should look for a house without radon—not understanding that all homes have some amount of radon in the air, and the ones with a radon system are sure to have a low level. To learn more about normal radon levels, see our blog post “What is the average radon level of indoor and outdoor air in America?”

  2. Bullet What does it cost to run it? - The size of the system will affect the operating expense, but an average cost is about $16 per month. Go to our blog post “What is the operating cost of a radon mitigation system” for more details.

While we hope you find this series of articles about home inspection helpful, they should not be considered an alternative to an actual home inspection by a local inspector. Also, construction standards vary in different parts of the country and it is possible that important issues related to your area may not be covered here.
