If you haven't heard of a "meth lab" by now, you must be living under a rock. Countless news reports, internet articles, and even petitions have been circulating the media world the past few years with regards to the phenomenon.
Do you think Tampa Real Estate is impacted by meth labs?
Sure it is! Home values nearby could potentially drop, the physical meth lab could explode and burn down a home, as well as burning the adjacent neighboring homes even.
More importantly, how do you keep it from impacting YOUR Tampa Real Estate?
Simple! The DEA has setup a National Clandestine Laboratory Register for Florida, which lists the addresses to homes that are known to have been contaminated and may require a professional meth lab cleaning kit.
Looking for more information about the National Clandestine Laboratory Registry, please visit the DEA's website at http://www.justice.gov/dea/clan-lab/clan-lab.shtml and select the state in which you would like the data on.
Here's to hoping your Tampa Real Estate purchase is not on the lists!
