Well, some areas of NJ are more prone to higher radon readings than others, but even in towns where elevated radon readings may be rare, an occasional reading can come in at over 4.0.....
I wouldn't worry about it as long as you have a reputable mitigation company do the work.
They can also explain the process and reassure you that after the installation, radon will no longer be an issue - your toddler can safely play in the lower level!
I have a 3 yr old granddaughter - so I can empathize with your concerns... more
Mark, you can obtain the millage rates for the Twp. or city, county, and the respective school district on the Dauphin County Website. They are shown indivisually for each taxing entity. You can also call the Twp. or city tax accessor to garner the information for your particular property. As far as any special assesments ask the twp. manager or city representative for a written copy if they make any references at all.... more
Here are the Dauphin County Multi-List Statistics for 2010. So to day the average length of time on the market for all of Dauphin County is about 100 days. This probably pretty reflective of the 17110 zip. What you should do when interviewing a real estate agent is ask them what their average days on market might be. My AVERAGE days on market for my listings is 45. I would love to talk to you about our marketing program if you are looking to sell your home. I have a more detailed statistic if you are interested in seeing it please forward me your email address to BOTH firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. This will allow for myself or my assistant to forward that information onto you. We look foward to speaking with you and giving you this information.... more
Lucy, did anyone at the builder's office explain AGENCY to you at all? The sales manager may very well be salaried, that has absolutely nothing to do with the SAC or selling agent compensation. The listing agent lists the house. Listing agents represent the seller. The selling agent is the agent who sells the house--that agent also represents the seller NOT the buyer he brings. If a selling agent comes from an outside agency they STILL represent the seller and the seller is liable for whatever misinformation they give--even if the seller has never MET the selling agent. This is why the builder you are dealing with is NOT COMPENSATING SELLING AGENTS. He is not compensating agents who bring buyers UNLESS they are BUYER AGENTS and represent the buyer. Because the buyer agent's liability ends with the buyer agent and does not extend to the seller.
I wish the NAR would spend more time on educating the public and less on telling everyone what a great time it is to buy.... more
