Highland Lakes Real Estate Sales Report in June 2019

It has been estimated that radon causes 5,000 to 20,000 lung cancer deaths yearly. It is a colorless and odorless radioactive gas. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Northville and Novi neighborhoods and we know that radon is second only to smoking as a cause of lung cancer. It has been estimated that nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the US has elevated radon levels. It is produced when small amounts of uranium and radium in soil and rocks decay. Radon gas will also decay into smaller and radioactive particles that can be inhaled into the lungs where it can damage cells and cause lung cancer. It is mainly released from the soil, water and natural gas which have already been exposed to radon, from solar-heating systems that use radon-emitting rocks, and from uranium or phosphate mine tailings. Radon is naturally released in low concentrations, but inside your house, radon gas can become more concentrated. Lack of ventilation exhaust fans that bring in air from outside can increase the amount of radon in your home. For people selling their homes, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that the house be tested for radon, and radon levels be reduced, if necessary. Radon levels can be reduced by increasing the airflow into the house, keeping the vents open year round, and discouraging smoking in the house. For people buying homes, the EPA recommends obtaining radon test results in addition to information about radon reduction systems. Check out below to see what sold in Highland Lakes in June 2019:
