P to P and EDR to Provide Environmental Reports


Recommended Posts


MINNEAPOLIS, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Pillar To Post, the industry leader in home inspection services and Environmental Data Resources, Inc (EDR), the leading national provider of environmental risk information, jointly announced today that they will make environmental reports available to the Minnesota residential real estate market.

Starting immediately, home buyers and sellers in Minnesota who use Pillar to Post professionals for their home inspections will have access to a EDR Neighborhood Environmental Report, which provides important information on known and potential contamination that exists on or in the vicinity of a property.

"Pillar To Post is very excited to work with EDR to be the first to provide this valuable service to real estate professionals, home buyers and home sellers in Minnesota," said Dan Steward, CEO of Pillar To Post. "While the reports often give neighborhoods a clean bill of health, real estate professionals and home buyers are always much better-off to uncover any potential environmental issues up front, as opposed to retroactively addressing a problem after a sale has been completed."

Compiling data from federal, state, local and private databases, Neighborhood Environmental Reports provide records of contamination that could cause serious health problems as well as property devaluation. Homes that are contaminated often show no visible signs of the dangers they pose to residents through toxic air, water or soil problems. Examples of contaminates the report screens for include leaking underground storage tanks, hazardous waste sites, Superfund sites or even if a property was previously used as a methamphetamine ("meth") drug laboratory.

"For over fifteen years, environmental information has been a part of commercial real estate transactions. EDR created this report in response to the growing trend of residential buyers wanting or even expecting increasing amounts of information before making important decisions; whether for purchasing a car, making a health related decision or investing in a home," said Robert Barber, CEO of EDR. "Part of this 'due diligence' trend is an increasing demand for expertly prepared environmental information.
