Asbestos Hope

I've been working on home stuff, and learned that household asbestos abatement isn’t as expensive as you’d imagine. I was just quoted $3000 by a certified, insured firm to handle some asbestos insulation on pipes in my basement. Not cheap, but not the five-figure monster I'd expected.

It may not increase my home value, but not spooking prospective house buyers will lead to a better/faster home sale, and that's worth at least $3000 (home sales aren't determined by a two-dimensional axis of higher/lower. A serious-sounding issue repels 95% of buyers regardless of bargain pricing).
