You should always follow code, but you may want to ask your local inspector if homeowners are permitted to put in whatever they wish provided it meets state code which PEX does however Chicago is like it's own country so you will want to be careful there.

Otherwise PEX is a great product with most likely at least a 25 year warranty with a life expectancy of 100 plus years if installed correctly. What do you get with copper ...most likely a 1 year tail light warranty from the contractor.

Lastly PEX does not allow mineral build up, is flexible and is most cases freeze resistant which is a great application for hose bibs. My friend ran pex to his dog house and has been exposed to cold weather for 7 years without fail now.

The short-sale occurred in 2012. Fast forward to 2017, they are asking for the difference between the asking price and selling price. What can I do?

Run the numbers. Talk with a CPA. Home values shift. No one writes when the values go UP 10%.
Yes, if you cannot afford to sell, rent it out, become an accidental real estate investor like could be a great thing.

Talk with a CPA, then email me with questions.
