WE are moving to the Wichita area and trying to find a good city to live with excellent schools and a big yard with mature trees. Is there any reason not to live in Derby?

Yes there is and your contract contains the timeline. Chances are they have no rights to rescind based on this inspection, but if they find out there are termites they can take some action.
Your agent should have provided you with a timeline of events and kept you informed as the dates went by. If they complete the sale, don't worry about it this time. If they raise the issue, go back to the contract and review the timelines carefully. Some dates are calendar days and some are business days. If they want to fight and your agent isn't up to it, have an attorney review and advise you. Sorry for the difficulties.

I agree! Oaklawn is actually an area that was "temporary" housing for military families years ago. It was not intended to still be a developed area but rather, replaced with newer homes...well, that never happened and now its one of the higher crime areas in the Wichita suburbs, and would NOT be a place I would ever desire to raise MY kids. ... more

Your realtor should be helping. Defect's that showed up during inspection should be fixed before purchase can be completed. Especially major deftect's. Also, you should always have your own home inspection done. It can cost a little extra, but it is well worth the expense. Surely your realtor made you aware of hiring a reputable person to inspect the home for you, beside's the inspector working for your loan company. I believe we need a blog to have people state the problem's they run into. It is alway's "buyer beware". A home buyer should always do their homework. However your realtor should be watching out for you. They do hold some responsibility...buyer beware! ... more

Because Derby is a community of rich people and most people that live in derby do not rent. So maybe that's why its hard to find rental homes in derby.

Hi Pamela,

Your listing needs to be updated to refresh it on Trulia. To do this, go into the listing source on Visual Tour and make a change to the description, even just adding a period or comma will tell us that it is still a live listing.

I must say when I moved from Tucson, AZ my parents bought a house in Derby. Now that I have a family of my own we have bought a house in Derby. I would never live anywhere else. Wichita homes are cheaper but look at all the crime rates and things of that sort. I would rather drive a little for work or to the mall or where ever so that I can ensure when I am working 7p-7a my family is safe!! ... more
