What A Seller Should Expect About Radon Tests
Being an exclusive buyer agent in Canton MA who only represents buyers, I am not usually in a position of giving out advice to Sellers. However, time and time again when I have buyers who are having a radon test done in their home, I run into Sellers who were not advised what to expect.
If the Massachusetts home buyer who is buying your home chooses to test for radon, their home inspector will leave a radon test running at the time of home inspection. The radon test runs for a minimum of 48 hours. When the Radon Test is running, whether it be canisters, vials or a continuous read machine, all doors and windows to the house must remain closed, except for normal exit and entry. If the test is running in the basement, then the basement door must also remain closed.
During the summer months if a home does not have central air conditioning, this may be an inconvenience to the Seller. However, home buyers will want to test for Radon levels as part of their home inspection contingency. Open windows and doors can result in false high or low readings, which is not good for buyers or sellers.
