Most of the homes that are still out there (like this one) that have "defective" drywall are being identified as having it in the agent confidential remarks of the MLS. It would be a good idea for you to enlist the help of a Realtor that has access to the MLS so they can help you find the homes that are not showing signs of having bad drywall. You and your families health is so much more important than finding an exceptional deal on a home. There are so many construction companies that are getting into bidding battles to be able to rehab these sick homes that those low prices are creeping upwards because of the buyer competition. However, people are still a bit skeptical of buying the rehab homes even with certification the rehab was done to County specifications.
Please let me know how I may further assist you in shopping for a home here.

The listing states that it has chinese drywall therefore it has been disclosed. I'm not sure if you had a specific question about that. Please let us know if we can help.

Hi Marilyn,

It hard to say without getting an inspection, but it was built in 2007 which is toward the end of the discovery of its existence. The price is too good to believe so I am suspicious. If you in the area I be glad to view it with you. I have ways of detecting defective drywall, but this not as good as having a Home inspection, nor bypasses it. But if I detect it, no use moving forward, unless you want to.

If you contact me, I be glad to send you a list of homes with your specifications and price range that will give greater information about the properties you are viewing. Also, you have a direct line to ask me questions and get an answer back. It good to hire a Realtor now and work with him/her and if they are not helping, fire him /her and hire another. I am here to help and set you up in a great program.

about Chinese drywall:…

Remember Marilyn, “Pictures without ALL the information are never the total picture and always the entire story ~!” Realtor Ron W ..”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! Hire an agent that will tell you and find the missing pieces. Then when you actually view the property everything will begins to fall into place. Remember too to hire a Realtor® that is not the listing agent that serves the seller. Lastly, the seller pays the commission; you get to choose your Realtor®! I like to help you”

Hope I have help Marilyn with the most important information you need. Get the right information, and prepare yourself so when the times come, you have an agent that prepared you to buy, and works with you in seeing the property is a sound one for you.

My Best to you and good luck in your home Searching:

Did you have a particular question about this home? It is publicly disclosed that it has defective drywall.

The proper way to approach this, is to have an Inspection:
Realtors probably do not know if has or not.

You can make an Offer CONTINGENT upon the Inspection; and then decide.
This is the proper way to buy Real Estate.
