If you're going to sell, spend the cash. It's not worth possibly losing a sale after failing a radon inspection.

The only benefit of home ownership is you have the choice of fixing it. A renter doesn't. While you can move when you rent, that's much easier when you don't have 30+ years of crap to haul with you.

For a Jersey boy you seem naive in the dark arts. Don't you know somebody that knows somebody?
Yeah, I know people. But my connections in братва aren't helpful with radon. :D

That's the rub. Our house (without the system running) does not have a radon level in excess of what is required for mitigation. The law only requires a working system if you're above a certain level. However, I can see it coming up during the sale and yeah, I'd rather have it not be an issue. The last time we moved the buyers required us to repair two window screens in order to close. I still hate their guts, but it's apparently a different market out there now - home prices are such that people are not (collectively) being a-holes over the things that were a "problem" in 2007.
