Bob, the listing itself reads that "Visual inspection has confirmed presence of chinese drywall." There is no state-approved or generally accepted remediation of Chinese drywall at this time, so it's a buyer-beware investment.

May I offer to do the research on alternative homes without the risks of Chinese drywall for you? I welcome your call at 239-440-1069—or email your criteria to

Hi Bob

My understanding is that all he homes in this small subdivision are possibles for Chinese dry wall. If it was not so widespred in the neighborhood, it might still be a great investment for someone with cash and who was up to a large project.

Many of the newer communities do not have the problem or may have it only in very small numbers. It gets back to the old saying, "If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably isn't "

If I can look into other properties for their good points and possible bad points, Please let me know. I have 17 years of selling homes in the Fort Myers area to my credit and would enjoy sharing my experience in home finding with you.

Very best regards,
