Radon and repairs needed on home we are interested in.We are trying to buy a home and recently had an inspection done.The realtor doesn't believe the sellers would give anything more off of the price as an amendum to the current contract as they have already come down 5% off the cost of the home. The Realtor works in the same office and is friends with the listing agent, so I have some concerns there, maybe unfounded. She really did seem to be selling me on the idea that I'm getting a good deal and should live with my issues which are:Roof will need replaced in 2 years and needs some repair in spots now although leaks were not found, although the inspector only peaked inside the attic without walking through. Air/Furnace at the end of their projected life of 15 years. House is 14 years old (ryan home)Many other minor things such as a couple leaking pipes, aging water heater, front patio needs to have a railing put in as it's high enough to warrant.Then the radon test came through at 3.7 pci on average from two test units. From what I've read on gov and real estates sites, this is not considered high but close to, and mitigation systems can resolve. Do I really want some clunky mitigation system in place that I have to maintain? Also, do I trust these actually work. Not sure. After reading many articles from scientific journals vs government and real estate sites, it seems the two agree to disagree on the effects and effectivness of mitigation systems.Need some experienced advice.August 12 2011 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
