The property was going to be purchased for cash. We completed the search and identified a specific potential problem with a past but active leak at a gasoline station. This led the buyer to ask for more information. When the right questions were asked, it was determined that there may be some environmental hazards that could impact the value of the property. In addition, the preliminary search suggested that the property could be located in a floodplain.
A quote from the buyer:
“The preliminary information and educational materials allowed me to better understand my risk and allow me to find a new property in a timely manner and save over $200,000.00“
