Yes, it will. . Are you a first time buyer? And I am assuming you are pre-qualified since you are asking about FHA. Here's a good link for you: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/buying/loans

2,500 sq. ft. is not too much for a 3 person family. As your child gows, you will use the space for an office room, game room, exercise room etc. The question is do you want to spend the extra money for maintaining a larger home? You can even close off heat/air registers to part of the home until you need it to hold utilitiy bills down. However, maintenance costs, utilties, insurance etc will be higher than in a smaller home. It is a choice. Location, whether the home "feels right", and quality of the home are important. ... more

Despite a small percentage of situations that may pose some unforeseen unique challenge, it's fairly safe to say "All radon problems are solvable".

Homes with a properly installed system are typically far lower in Radon levels than are the neighboring homes.

Systems should come with a written contract and guarantee to lower levels or installer will come back. We Do!

The area I live and work in is Colorado Springs / El Paso County. A good majority of homes, buildings and schools here are elevated in this region.

With proper testing and diagnostics with specialized equipment, a good system can be installed to safely and quietly lower levels of Radon.

The last few we have done lowered the levels below 1 pci/l. I try not to guarantee that I can get levels this low... the proof is in the pudding. :-)

With a region like ours, I think the mitigation system is a plus, you are buying a home that should have the lowest levels of this odorless, tasteless invisible product that poses the largest risk of lung cancer in non-smokers.

All homes should be tested during a resale or similar Real Estate transaction. Just to be sure.

Systems that are installed and working correctly should still be checked every 2 years or at times of building alteration, addition etc.
