So Many Decisions
There is so much to think about when selling your home:
1) Is it a buyers’ market or a sellers’ market? How can I price my home so that it sells quickly?
2) What marketing strategies are effective and will sell my home quickly?
3) What’s this thing called “curb appeal?”
4) What should I do to have my home in top-selling condition?
5) How much should I fix? How much should I leave as-is?
6) How much of a hassle is involved in showing my home?
7) Should I try to sell my home all by myself? Or should I use an agent?
8) What about all the paperwork and legalities?
9) What about my next home? Should I buy or rent?
10) And more!

There are cracks in the foundation. Nothing structural. Nothing that’s going to threaten the stability of the home, but they’re there. Nooks, crannies and holes through which seeps an invisible threat. Colorless, odorless and undetectable by your average human, it is nonetheless the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.
Radon gas – even the name sounds ominous, evoking images of radiation and nuclear devastation. Radon gas is created when uranium in the soil decays. The gas then seeps through any access point into a home. Common entry points are cracks in the foundation, poorly sealed pipes, drainage or any other loose point. Once in the home, the gas can collect in certain areas – especially basements and other low-lying, closed areas – and build up over time to dangerous levels. The Environmental Protection Agency of the US Government has set a threshold of 4 pico curies per liter as the safe level. As humans are exposed to the gas over a period of years, it can have a significant and detrimental effect.
