If this is "unsolicited" email...
Obviously - do not open it...

If this is potential business and you want to confirm prior to deletion...

Send an email back to the provider - preferably from a non-business email account...
If you respond to the email from this email - you are confirming the email address as an "active address".

If you get a response with a phone , do the obvious - call and speak -
Normally you will not receive a response as this is done "en mass" and not a single targeted box.

You can also perform a "reverse look-up" on the email address -
Check the address in the header - is it valid?

Google for instructions... Use a site like

All this can be done - with suspicious email....

I see based on the answers given - the Portland MLS allows searches for multiple types of "Green" elements...

I am here in Florida... Just looked for "solar" or "green" - results were "Solar St" and "Green Ct"
In other words - these search options do not exist here...

Is good one for the suggestion box...

I think this is a good "inclusion" on a listing -
Especially one that may be at the top of the market in it's asking price...

Regardless - any "tactic" that can be used to get additional eyes on your listing is a "good tactic"...

Get it SEEN - Get it SOLD

Allan and Sharon Lindahl answered:
Radon gas is an odorless, colorless, radioactive gas that can pose serious health risks. It is produced from minerals in soil and rock, such as uranium and radium. Indoor radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the leading cause among non-smokers. This naturally occurring substance has been found in homes throughout the United States. It is responsible for more than 20,000 lung-disease-related deaths ever year. Radon gas is able to move through pore spaces in the soil or fill material around a home’s foundation. Radon gas is a serious health concern and should be taken seriously by all. Testing is inexpensive, so get it done. In addition, we have some high level areas here in Minnesota as well. We mitigated our home several years ago and were able to bring the level down to .6 pCi/L. I would highly recommend all home owners test for radon and install a mitigation system to reduce levels in their homes.

RMLS Portland is the best source of market information. Official statistics are always about a month behind, they have to compile data. I recommend you sign up for the monthly reports. You may be able to find them elsewhere - you can also sign up for them on my website. ... more

R: and, so remember it's a competition (as there is a larger pool of inventory, a smaller pool of buyers). When you're ready to sell, you must undercut the competition. You best located home in the best condition with the best price will sell first.
All the best,
