Why Should Realtors/Brokers Care About Radon in a Home?

Why Should Realtors/Brokers Care About Radon in a Home?

Denver Radon MitigationIn my last article (Christopher Gibson, Denver Real Estate News, 31 January 2016) we discussed why radon is important. It is now known that it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Now let’s discuss why you as a professional need to care about it and why you need to do something about it.

RealtorMag (http://realtormag.realtor.org/sales-and-marketing/handouts-for-customers/for-buyers/5-most-dangerous-hazards-in-home) showed in their article “5 Most Dangerous Hazards in a Home” as #1 being Radon. The radon liability awareness is growing.

As Chris Gibson has said, “This is the time to fix the radon issue. It’s not going to be a priority once you move in. It is easy to overlook because it is not visible and it may not immediately harm you plus it is easy to forget. So now is the time to take care of it.”

Denver Radon MitigationMore buyers are becoming aware that this is a priority and who pays for it is often an issue. Doing their mitigation we (http://radoninatorllc.com/) have seen a wide variety of payment options. Sometimes just the seller pays or just the buyer pays but my favorite happened again just the other day. Seller and Buyer discussed it. The seller agreed to pay for the basic system but they both met us the day of the mitigation so the buyer could decide if he wanted to pay for additional aspects himself. They worked together. I predict that you will see more of this.

For the seller this adds value to their home and for the buyer it is an added benefit to their new home. It is win-win for everyone.

As Peter Pstony (Colorado Homes Sales) has said, “I’m a Real Estate Professional looking out for my clients and this removes my liability. This solidifies my value as a realtor or broker. I educate people.” Among other things he points out, “Why get lung cancer and then mitigate it?”

Denver Radon MitigationAlso, everyone needs to be aware that this is a growing liability. In Pannone v. Grandmaison (1990) the buyer requested that the “Purchaser’s approval” be based on the home inspection with the radon levels being really low as he was extra sensitive to radon due to exposure to radiation while serving in the US Air Force. The levels found were not terribly high for Connecticut but he insisted on canceling the sale and wanted his $18,000 back. The seller refused. The Connecticut Superior Court sided with the buyer and returned all his money. So as radon gas liability awareness grows so does the responsibility of real estate agents and brokers.

Radon history has shown us we could all suffer or we can all work things out for the best for everyone. So as professionals you need to ensure lower liability, healthier homes, and satisfactory payments for mitigation.

Denver Real Estate Agent Reviews Denver Realtor Reviews Better Business Bureau Christopher GibsonHere are a few local causes Denver Realtor And Real Estate Agent Christopher Gibson supports on a personal or professional level.


Central Presbyterian Church

Central Presbyterian ChurchMy wife and I have been members of Central Presbyterian Church since 2009.

Central Presbyterian Church in downtown Denver, a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in Colorado, is a witness to God’s love and grace revealing itself in creation through Jesus Christ. Central is an urban church that thrives on the diversity of people and perspectives in Denver. We hold faith and reason in creative tension, yielding fresh understandings of fidelity to God. We strive to nurture community—both among our members and beyond our walls—giving meaning to the common good. Central’s historic building is a sacred space, linking the past with the future.


Adoption Options

Adoption Options

Assisted with the placement of our children in August of 2013 and subsequent adoption in November of 2014.

Since 1981, Adoption Options, Colorado’s premier adoption agency, has placed over 1,650 infants and children in safe, loving homes.
We have supported thousands of birth parents through the difficult process of selecting the best choice for their children and themselves.


Extreme Community Makeover

Extreme Community MakeoverI first encounter Extreme Community Makeover when I lived in Ruby Hill from May 2009 until July 2013 . They are a force for positive change in southwest Denver.
Extreme Community Makeover is a movement of volunteers working in partnership with residents of specific Denver neighborhoods to complete home and neighborhood improvement projects.

These projects include graffiti removal, landscaping, painting, yard work, or other projects identified by the residents. Groups such as churches, companies, families, and schools may participate, or individuals can take part. Equally important as fences that are built are the relationships being built—between the volunteers and community members, among the neighbors on a block, and between the community and resources in their neighborhood.
