Is your septic system flowing or is it blocked up?

A few years ago we shot this video with TJ from Delaware Valley Septic about three reasons why you should inspect your septic system before you list your Main Line home for sale.

Many Main Line homes are on public water and sewer, but in some places like Penn Valley and Chester County have septic systems. A functioning septic system is a requirement for a mortgage. So before you list you want to know as much as possible so as not to run into problems with a sale.

Price quote in the video may be outdated but the points made are not. 

Whether your home has stucco, septic system or well water we know the right contractors and inspectors to help you prepare your home for sale. Thinking of listing your home for sale contact Nick Vandekar, Tredyffrin Easttown Realtor, Selling The Main Line with Long & Foster Real Estate Inc.

Fantastic explanation on septic tank maintenance Nick and Trudy! We have one as well and know it needs to be taken care of diligently.

Good morning Nick and Trudy.  This is an issue we deal with quite often in our area as well.

Nick, we do not see Septic systems here in the city, only if we venture out into the Country.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD thanks, good subject to hit. Plan on doing one for buyers soonas well.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! if looked after septic systems will not be a problem.

Glad you don't have to deal with this Endre Barath, Jr. 

Gabe Sanders I am surprised by some of the areas where these turn up that they are not on public sewer.

Amanda S. Davidson thanks we try to be educational from both a seller and a buyer viewpoint.

Sheila Anderson that is very true.

Joan Cox in the suburbs it is mixed, surprising sometimes where there is no public sewer.

Nick,

 We too thankfully have very few spetic systems, though my husband's boss has one that has done well in upstate New York.

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert they are not a problem if looked after properly. It is all about gravity and making sure there are no blockages.

Good info. I list many homes with well/septic and always recommend a compliance test prior to listing as almost all buyers and some communities will require the test. If the system requires replacing, you will know before the buyer's offer and can market the home as having a new septic.

Teri Eckholm very true, then the buyer knows they have no problems for a long time if they treat it correctly.
