My husband an I are about to buy a our first home. ?We found one we love and in our price range. ?One problem. ?It has high levels of radon. ?While our test have not come back yet we know it does because the current owners already have installed a mitigation system. ?We have done a lot of research and know the system can eliminate most (but never all) of the problem. So my question is...would you still buy the home with the system? ?We plan to use the basement as our future kids playroom and a office for my husband. Thats where the most radon collects as well. ?We really need the space in the basement. Again we know the system can fix it but we are still very apprehensive. ?Also will this effect our re-sale value? ?Our realtor says no, but we cant help but think it does since we are questioning it and we love the house.
?Anyone in the same situation? ?Living with kids in a high level radon house? If so do you have an paranoia, any fears, or is it just normal living? ?Also any one trying to sell there house and this is effecting it? ?We are looking for a little first hand advice. ?Thanks for your help in advance?
