Radon Gas and real estate

Dated: December 29 2021

Views: 7

Radon gas is such an important part of selling/buying a home that the Property Disclosure Statement filled out by home sellers actually includes it. However no one talks about it. I've been selling real estate since 2005 and at the time of creating this video I've never met someone who has tested their home. The sad part is to get a proper test done takes 3 months, even though you can purchase a kit which takes 96 hours. So once people are ready to sell it's sorta the last thing on their minds. New construction codes have radon mitigation systems installed in some areas but what about the millions of homes that have never been tested. 16% of lung cancer deaths are from Radon Gas...maybe it should be mandatory all homes get tested??
