 selling a home with a septic system

If you are planning on selling a home with a septic system, then it is a good idea to be prepared to do your own due diligence to make sure you can assure your potential buyers that your home’s septic system is in the best shape. A properly functioning septic system is critical to making sure the investment in the home is preserved. No home owner, nor yourself as the seller for that matter, wants to learn the hard way just how much damage an improperly maintained system can do to the interior of a home.

If you are selling a home with a septic system, then you should also be aware that not only is the interior of the home at risk if the system has not been properly maintained, but the lawn area (where family, children and pets are apt to play) can also become contaminated with biological hazards in a worst-case sort of scenario.

While it can be inconvenient with all of the other things you are trying to do to prepare to move and to sell your home, it sure can be easier on you if you are selling a home with a septic system to take care of documenting good condition, recent pumping, and proper function of your tank at a time just prior to your sale – rather than having to dig everything up while you are in the midst of entertaining what may be a queue of potential buyers. Save yourself the hassle and call us at Sauer Septic to get documentation of a properly functioning septic system and recently pumped septic tank today.
