"You got to die from something"
Sure the health issue is an important issue and the reason for testing in the first place. However, there is another issue most agents and buyers fail to consider. The average time for home ownership is seven years. Suppose you don't care about the health issue. Do you care anything about the contents of your wallet? Don't test, when you resale, there is a good chance the next buyer will. There is over a 40% chance in Forsyth County of North Carolina (where most of my inspections are performed) that YOU will be paying for a mitigation system. Had you tested, you probably could have forced the seller to pay for this when you purchased the home. Are you seeing dollar signs yet? Whose pocket would you prefer the dollars come from, yours or the sellers? Add this to the health issues and the choice for testing is a no-brainer.Check out this video produced by the EPA:
