Hi, as you most likely know, Chinese drywall falls between the years of 2002 and 2007.
Most likely you won't find any seller disclosures. Even if their was one. If it stated none is present, the little extra would be worth the money to "trust and verify" and having 'peace of mind", It may surprise many, Chinese drywall can show up in homes built before 2002, if any renovation or repairs were made during those years requiring the use of drywall. The agent you hire should be wise enough to check this is not the case and caution you of the possibilities.
My advice to you, as you look for properties, hire ONE agent and work with him / her. We all work with the same resources and some agent are better than others at it and also have better resources for their client to use. Also, you get to see how the agent works with you and how responsive he/she is with your needs. Sometime the agent and the client just does not "kick in" so you should fire him/her and hire one that you are comfortable with and help you through the maze of obtaining the keys to your new home.
Also and remember too: â€œPictures without ALL the information are never the total picture and always the entire story ~!â€ Realtor Ron W ..â€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! Having an agent will get you the missing pieces. Then when you actually view the property; have it inspected when everything begins to fall into place having a pre-approval letter or proof of funds ready done ready in the seller's hands. Sellers and Banks expect this information, before reviewing yours or any offer. Do not lose out by not having this or a RealtorÂ® that is not the listing agent that serves the seller. Remember, the seller pays the commission!! You Get to choose your RealtorÂ®!â€
