Reality Property Inspections
Answer: Never
Explanation: Home owners are not required to test for radon before putting their home on the market. However, if they live in an area that is known to be high in radon, I would suggest having it tested before listing their home. If the radon levels are unfavorable it may be to their advantage to mitigate the radon issue before listing their home. If it is discovered in a buyer's home inspection that the radon levels are high/unfavorable, there is a good possibility that it will cost you more money to mitigate it, as well as more time.
