We have been looking for a house for about 6 months now. We just found a great house couple of weeks ago. We placed an offer last weekend which got approved. I have an inspection due tomorrow. I had the inspection company do the radon gas inspection as well. They put their equipments 2 days ago. I just got the results. The results from the 3 tests are 5.63, 5.59 and 5.61 respectively.
I am really shocked to hear about the above normal results and this makes me very very nervous. This house is in Farmington Hills, MI.
I know that the extreme option is to back out of the deal. What should I really do is a whole different question...
- Should I negotiate for the price of the house and then put the saved money against treating the high level?
- Should I back out of it completely? Does it make sense? Is it a good enuff reason?
If I go with the first option, is treatment effective? How long the treatment takes to complete remove the gas and if it is completely removed, what are the chances of it coming back...
This is really really really urgent. Please give me all the input you can....
Thanks in advance
