I'm by no means a general contractor or an expert on chinese drywall, but some signs of a house that has chinese drywall will smell like sulfur or rotten eggs. If the home has an attic you can also remove some of the insulation on the ceiling and look for a sticker that has KPT or Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin or a made in china sticker.

My recommendation is to have a general contractor inspect your home for Chinese Drywall and remove. Good Luck with the sale of your home!

Could be anywhere from a couple weeks to over a year. There is no rhyme or reason to why, it is what it is... I just finally today got an acceptance on one I have had listed since May. Contract was written in May.. 6 Months.... I have had others that were closer to 12 months. While others have been done in less than 3 months
Alot depends on the Agents, the sellers and of course the Banks...

Makk sure you get a home inspection. There are signs that stick out like a sore thumb. Look at anything copper in the homes, the copper will be covered with black soot stuff, almost looks like balck insulation over the copper pipes. Check the water heater pipes, connections under sinks and the air handler.... I have saw it in several homes. We were told that is was put into about 1/2 of 1% of the homes built, not sure if thats true or not, just what I was told.
There is a good article in todays paper here about it, it also lists a number of builders in the paper, but not all of them as I have saw it in some homes where the builders were not on this list.

Remember its all pretty new to the area so it is just starting to be looked into.
