Hi, Typically, single people are exempt up to $250k profit and couples up to $500k as long as you have lived in the home two of the past five years. Laws change frequently so your account will guide you accordingly.

Hi, I would be happy to help. I would need the property address in order to send the comps from the MLS. I can also give you my opinion of value as well but would need to know the condition of your home, updates, etc. Thanks!

Murphy Team, Real Estate Pro in Portland, ME

Murphy Team answered:
Radon mitigation is a subjective issue specific to each buyer. Radon exists naturally (even in the air we breathe). Left to the experts, the physics is rather simple. Influence the air flow from under your foundation with a proper mitigating system and the level will be reduced to below the EPA recommended level of 4 PcL.

Regarding the length of time on the market, this could be for any number of reasons. Usually the price is the reason, but it could be location or condition as well.
