Are there any symptoms I can look for when looking to buy a home?

Although, we have been dealing with this issue of "Chinese" drywall for sometime now, many home buyers and even some Realtors are still looking for a tool to help them identify some symptoms of "Chinese" drywall.   This is for you! 

There is nothing more frustrating for buyers and Realtors than making offer after offer and finding out that the home has "Chinese" drywall.  Not to mention the cost involved every time you have these homes inspected.  There are some symptoms you can look for to help you in considering whether you should move forward with an offer at all.   

The Florida Department of Health has a great Self Assessment tool that can help you be proactive when looking at homes to purchase. If the home doesn't have any of these symptoms than you can move forward with an offer and with an inspection on that one property you can feel more secure in your decision.   I think you will find this very helpful.
