Current Sticker Price $1.7 Million.
As of yesterday, the selling agent has no idea if anyone ever did the second set of surface soils tests that the city's own consultant recommended.
The first buyers must have asked for the testing. They must have. You would think that before buying a home for over $2 million dollars they would make sure the soils were clean. The buyers might not have known of the soil problems, but all the local RE agents who do their homework should have known. It would not have been difficult to identify the problem and a remedy to the concern before closing the deal. The only time you don't collect the data is when you don't want to know the answer.
The tough problem now is, what to do if the soils are still contaminated. You can't do what the city is making developers do, now that the public knows they can't trust the city to do the right thing.
