In most contracts the termite clause states that the seller is responsible for up to 2% of the purchase price for termite repairs or treatment unless you purchased this "as is." The radon can also be remediated fairly easy as the level is not very high. I would draw up an addendum and ask the seller to take care of these issues as they are fairly common and now that it is known, the sellers will have to disclose it to any other interested buyers. ... more

i agree with Brucce. You can ask the current owner what there usage is with their oil heat. They probably have a budget billing which spreads out the cost of each tank throughout the year. I have seen bills from people recently that are the same as gas. And again, these prices fluctuate. In the eighties, gas was much cheaper so people often converted. The most important thing to look for in either oil or natural gas is the efficiency of the system. There is generally a tag on the unit itself that will tell you if it used most or least energy. An efficient oil furnace can be quite good.

You can also get a convverter that utilizes bio diesel, which can be more expensive but is better for the enivornment.

Well and septic? You need to make sure your water is potable and that the pressure system you have is going to be pumping enough water for your needs. You also just want to be more careful with chemicals that you put on your system and try to be as natural as possible which will prolong the life of these.

It is also your lifestyle that will determine your usage with your bills like getting a programable thermostat, etc.
