I'm sure your agent has told you the telltale signs to look for that indicate Chinese Drywall. The smell like sulpher (rotten eggs) black corrosion on anything copper in the home such as plumbing, a/c coils, electrical, etc. But even if those things aren't present, as everyone else is saying here, you should definitely get a full inspection. Spending a few hundred now is better than thousands later remediating bad drywall.
I have experience in that community, and have sold homes there. Most of the single family homes were built using Chinese drywall. The townhouses for the most part are okay. But that is no guarantee. The inspection period on your contract gives you the right to back out of the contract for any reason prior to the inspection period expiring. So whether the inspection shows anything or not, you have the right to back out and get any deposits back. Be careful though, banks are sticklers for that timeline, and will not give you any grace period if you go past that period of your inspection. Also, make sure that you know exactly how many days you have. Sometimes agents will ask for 15 days for inspections, but most banks won't give you more than 10 days. Good luck.

I recall when Coral Lakes development was first being built, a few of the homes had to be demolished before ever being finished due to settling of the foundations.
Regardless of what house you are buying an inspection is always suggested. Defective drywall is just one of many other things that may require fixing that can only be detected by a trained inspector. Paying for an inspection should be considered a necessary part of the process and not viewed as an extra expense. And YES, if substantial repairs are found during the inspection you can cancel the contract and get your deposit back (if it was spelled in the contract).

Most likely you won't find any seller disclosures. Even if their was one. If it stated none is present, the little extra would be worth the money to "trust and verify" and having 'peace of mind", It may surprise many, Chinese drywall can show up in homes built before 2002, if any renovation or repairs were made during those years requiring the use of drywall. The agent you hire should be wise enough to check this is not the case and caution you of the possibilities.
My advice to you, as you look for properties, hire ONE agent and work with him / her. We all work with the same resources and some agent are better than others at it and also have better resources for their client to use. Also, you get to see how the agent works with you and how responsive he/she is with your needs. Sometime the agent and the client just does not "kick in" so you should fire him/her and hire one that you are comfortable with and help you through the maze of obtaining the keys to your new home.
Also and remember too: â€œPictures without ALL the information are never the total picture and always the entire story ~!â€ Realtor Ron W ..â€Pictures being shown, are attention gotcha, use to draw your interest. The rest, the information, will help you decide. Where that information comes from is IMPORTANT to you, and it may not all be on the listing information! Having an agent will get you the missing pieces. Then when you actually view the property; have it inspected when everything begins to fall into place having a pre-approval letter or proof of funds ready done ready in the seller's hands. Sellers and Banks expect this information, before reviewing yours or any offer. Do not lose out by not having this or a RealtorÂ® that is not the listing agent that serves the seller. Remember, the seller pays the commission!! You Get to choose your RealtorÂ®!â€
