Let’s just say that if the fun hasn’t begun already, it will start now. For the next thirty to sixty days, or whatever time frame you put between contract signing and closing, the gears will be in motion, getting everything ready for the big day when you take possession of your new home. There will be appraisals and surveys to order, title searches and inspections to conduct and lenders to meet with.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas that has been found in homes nationwide.

Some of these paints still remain inside older homes and may particularly hazardous if in poor condition (chipped or peeling) or if disturbed by sanding or abrasion (creating lead dust).
