In 2010 I represented a buyer in the purchase of a home in Coral Lakes. This home was â€œcertifiedâ€ CDW remediated. Offer was accepted but during the inspection the inspectors and I keep smelling sulfur. The investor and his agent were actually angry at us for suggesting the home was still contaminated. We needless to say, the sale didnâ€™t go through and the buyer bought brand new in Moody River.
The point of my story is to say inspectors are sloppy. If the CDW is contained to one room I would suggest remediation. This would be the least costly for option for you. I can suggest several good contractors that specialize in CDW remediation.
Meanwhile if youâ€™d like to sell Iâ€™d love to hear from you.

I would fix the area in question, should be a small area per your description, and include the repair and reinspection of that room after in your seller disclosure.
The good news in all of this? Our prices are increasing and this occurance while maybe inconvenient, may actually get you a bit more money in the end.
Call me or e-mail if I can help you.

With respect to legal options, only a lawyer can answer that question. I feel bad for you that this happened but it can be fixed.
I do have investors that purchase homes with the defective drywall so it is still possible to sell your home. If you email me your address I will be happy to research it and provide you with fair market value based upon the chinese drywall issue.

What can I realistically list and sell this home and what is the general time frame to get a serious buyer? I understand this would be listed as a home with defective drywall signs. The home was listed and had a buyer at 150K prior to the inspection. What kind of realistic offer can I get now if I wanted to sell it in it's current state?
