Radon is a quirky gas, I have had many surprises at various properties, for instance the highest reading I have thus far encountered was in a beach area, which was a shock as we typically associate the gas with bedrock/ledge areas. Also if a high radon reading is found in the air, and the home has a well, you should also then have the water tested, so in regard to Greenwich this would pretty much apply to back country properties.
I hope this helps.

So much has to do with location and ventilation. Cost I have encountered is around 125.00 for buyer.
I always suggest to my buyers to perform a radon test due to the large amount of ledge rock in the area which emits radon gas. Any home with a basement or living area below the grade should definitely have a test performed.
Most inspection companies charge about $100 for it.
I believe that it is our responsibility as real estate agents to well inform our clients about the dangers of radon gas and encourage them to take the necessary steps to determine if the property is safe from it or if a remediation system is needed.
Just another means of showing our clients that we are working in their best interests.

As a Buyer Agent I always recommend that my buyer review the specifics of a home with their home inspector in order to make the best decision.
