Why should I pay
for a radon test?
Good question. Believe it or not it would suit
me just fine if I never did another radon test. Do you
really think I enjoy making two trips to the home
hauling very expensive pieces of equipment in and out?
The only reason I offer radon testing is that it is
expected in this area as part of the real estate
transaction. Well, I guess there is some concern about
the health of the occupants, but there are a lot of
opinions pro and con on that issue. What is it that
habitual smokers say? "You got to die from
Sure the health issue is an important issue and the
very reason for the testing in the first place. But,
there is another issue most agents and buyers fail to
consider. The average time for home ownership is seven
years. Suppose you don't care about the health issue.
Do you care anything about the contents of your
wallet? Don't test, when you resale, there is a very
good chance that the next buyer will and a 30 to 40%
chance in Forsyth County of North Carolina (where most
of my inspections are performed) that YOU will be
paying for a mitigation system that you probably could
have forced the seller to pay for when you purchased
the home. Are you seeing dollar signs yet? Who's
pocket would you prefer them to come from yours or the
sellers? Add this to the health issues and the choice
for testing is a no-brainer.
this isn't enough to convince you that you need a radon test before you
purchase your home, here are some very good resources to educate yourself on the
