Environmental Issues

When purchasing a piece of property, it is important to be aware of any environmental liabilities associated with it. For example, you should find out if there are any registered underground tanks within several miles of the property, known contaminated properties in the neighborhood, or property owners who have been fined by the government for failing to meet environmental safety standards.

Before, it took a costly site investigation to acquire this type of information, but now there are online environmental databases available at a fraction of the cost. Anyone can access reports on otherwise hard to detect environmental issues. With these databases, it is possible to obtain a list of hazards near a property, or spills and violations attributed to businesses nearby.

Some reputable databases include VISTA Information Systems, located in San Diego, California, which allows you to register and search the data bank for free, and E Data Resources, which is located in Southport, Connecticut. These services are all relatively inexpensive, but can provide you with priceless information that is useful before you make a purchase.

Harold it was a pleasure having you as my agent. You were always professional competent knowledgeable and a saint having to work with selling agent. I would highly recommend you to any of my friends and family. I especially noted how quick you were to respond to all my request and communications. I love my new home and looking forward to you stopping by to see the changes I made. Thanks again! Rosemarie Miller
Diane was Amazing. She walked me through the selling process, step by step. She was very knowledgable about the area, pulled comps often, and made sure to keep me informed about my competition throughout the entire process. She is very hands on and always available when needed. She even did a little manual labor getting the house ready to list. She did her homework well and sold my house in 4 day, above asking!! As a new agent, if she didn't know the answer, she always found out quickly and responded timely. Michele, Pinehurst NC
