So Many Houses to Choose From

Yes, it is a buyer's dream (or nighmare).  Those who are decisive will cut quickly to the ones with the features and location they will want.  So, it looks perfect and has what I am looking for.  But what is it you are not seeing?  There could be termites or other pests who have taken up residence.  There could be mold or radon gas or meth residue.  

Sure, you already know to have a home inspection, right?  But these days I also recommend you have a meth, mold and radon inspection.  It's not what you can see.  Pay no attention to the things you can change.  It is what you can't see.

Radon is odorless and colorless.  It is naturally occurring in the soil beneath your home.  It is also cancer causing.  Have a simple, inexpensive test to make sure the levels are within the EPA acceptable standards.

Meth houses don't always show obvious signs like we have read about.  Particularly when they are vacant!  Another simple, inexpensive test will swab in one or more areas to determine if there is still residue.  After all, you don't want your babies crawling around on carpet that is tainted by meth exposure.

If you want to know more about any of these hazards, or you want to know how to learn more, or contact specialists, just contact me.  I would be glad to help.
