Pre-listing, Sellers Inspection
So you know your house right? ……right?? An impartial inspector can bring to light items that will probably come up when a perspective buyer has their inspector look at your place. You can use the report as a fix it list or work with your realtor to price your home accordingly because it has a few repairs the buyer would have to assume. Either way, no surprises. No rushed unexpected repairs costing you $$$. No renegotiating the purchase price or worse yet having buyers walk The cost of the inspection would seem tiny to the amount you could have to shell out later.
Radon is a dangerous gas that could be lurking in your home without your knowledge. It has been blamed for 20,000 yearly deaths from lung cancer, and is currently the second-leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. How can you be sure that your family isn’t at risk? A professional radon test can tell you if the radon levels in your home are dangerous. Radon is an odorless, invisible gas and the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers in the U.S. While low levels of radon are not necessarily lethal, any amount of radon can be a problem. However, there are certain thresholds where radon is far more dangerous and the only way to tell the radon level in your home is with testing.
Well Water Sampling
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rules that protect public drinking water systems do not apply to individual water systems, such as privately owned wells. As an individual water system owner, it is up to you to make sure that your water is safe to drink.
Several water quality indicators (WQIs) and contaminants that should be tested for in your water are listed below. A WQI test is a test that measures the presence and amount of certain germs in water. In most cases, the presence of WQIs is not the cause of sickness; however, they are easy to test for and their presence may indicate the presence of sewage and other disease-causing germs from human and/or animal feces. (Please see Water-related Diseases and Contaminants in Private Wells for a list of additional germs and chemicals in drinking water wells and the illnesses they cause.)
