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.

Testimonials Page

When we sold our home last summer, we were referred to Greg Drake at Realty Professionals. Greg and his staff were so knowledgeable, professional and unbelievably helpful! The stager, that Greg hired, came into our home and made several recommendations and changes to allow our home show beautifully! Our home went on the market and we had 16 showings in the first day alone! At the close of business that very day, we had 11 offers that were either at or above asking price! My husband and I could not have been happier! However, there were several things that came up during the inspection but we did not have to stress about researching companies and getting bids and meeting deadlines. Greg did it all! He had an entire team of trusted, reasonably priced contractors who were able to take care of all our problems that same week! We could not have been more please with the honesty, professionalism and hard work that Realty Professionals provided for us! I cannot imagine having to sell another house without them! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy! Michelle S.
