Most home sellers and buyers don't seem to know that the average radon levels around Santa Clara county are around 1.3 – 1.5.
Given that, if a home owner has installed a radon mitigation system to reduce levels from 1.3 to say 0.5-0.6, will that bother prospective buyers? Or will they have enough context to understand that low levels were lowered even further?
Our house has a level of 1.3. While that's a good number per EPA standards (the threshold for taking action is 4.0), we'd like to bring it down further. Curious as to how future buyers may view our decision.. Do radon mitigation systems ever bother buyers or are they generally reassured that it's been taken care of and brought down to levels that are even lower than EPA recommendations? Any advice from folks that have sold homes with radon mitigation systems and how that impacted the process of selling their home?

Most consumers (buyers) only understand radon as it relates to EPA standards... and the only time they take notice of such is when their inspection is done.My experience is that buyers look at the radon test as a pass/fail event and give little financial (or other) advantage to a home that is "more passing" than another.
