1. Resources include the local MLS service which gives agents access to confidential remarks about the condition of a property such as "evidence of defective drywall". BTW, not all of the drywall that was poorly manufactured came from China.
2. A good Realtor will have experience with all of the aspects of the appearance of "defective" drywall. Some of which include: a distinct odor described as a sour sulfur smell, like someone just struck a match; black sooted ground wires in wall plugs; tarnished mirrors; A/C and refrigerator coils are black and sooty. This is just to name a few.
As I initially recommended the home inspector will make the final determination if a property has defective drywall. Our Florida purchase contracts allow the buyer to have up to 15 days to do their due diligence in all aspects of the property whether it is a home, condo, villa, duplex, townhome or coach home.
In the years of 2003 - 2007 there was an explosive increase of building going on in the United States. Florida was one of the hardest hit by buyers wanting their piece of paradise. Builders swarmed in along with all sorts of creative financing. Drywall manufacturers were faced with a demand for product bigger than they had ever experienced. These manufactureres were looking for solutions that would give them quicker setup of the drywall forms. These experiments lead them to a chemical called formaldehyde. The long term effects of the use of this chemical was unknown. Unfortunately, builders were at their mercy. The first detections didn't really surface until 2005-2007. They started with breathing and respitory problems especially in small children. I remember a friend of mine commenting on how she thought it was strange that her gold jewelry was turning green on her wrists and fingers. They were also having multiple service calls on their a/c unit. They ended up moving out of their home and having it remediated.
The good thing is that there have been great strides in the remediation of the defective drywall. There are inspections that are required during the process and certain guidelines have to be met in order to have the property certified. The certification will allow the new home buyer to be able to buy home insurance on the property. You can find more details on the required remediation on my website. http://www.flrealestatebuysell.com.
Thanks for your question and I look forward to assisting you with all of your real estate needs.

Typically, the inspector will look for indicators such as blackened copper wire, AC evidence, Chinese writing on drywall edging, etc. There is a company that guarantees that a home is free from this material with their inspection process. They use an X-ray type process that involves taking images of every sheet of drywall in the home and issue a warranty statement. The process is a little expensive and cost in the range of $600.00, depending on the size of the structure.
Consider looking up Greentree Environmental Services, Inc. (located in Cape Coral) or calling them at 239-322-8969.
Please contact me directly if you need further information for them.
For homes built 2001 and later, I always include a defective drywall addendum that allows you cancel your contract within the inspection period.
