Is it safe to buy a home with an elevated radon level? Yes, says a recent article from Consumer Reports.
Performing a radon test and remediating an issue, if found, should not keep you from owning or selling your home. In many cases, the price of the home can be adjusted during the sale to incorporate the added cost of a radon mitigation system (an average of $1,200).
When installed by a qualified professional, radon systems safely remove the carcinogenic gas, reducing a home’s radon level and creating a healthier environment for the family who lives there.
