Hi!

First-time home buyer here.

Saw a house I really loved, but

suspect it has unsealed asbestos

or cement board siding. The home was

built in the 20s and the boards

seem "rough" at the edges...like

you can see gray material that looks

like it could be flaked out with

a sharp device or just by picking

at it. Kinda reminds me of very thin

drywall. The material is not only

on the outside of the home, but also

on the enclosed porch walls. And, it's scaring the heck out of me! The

listing states "other" for siding

material, but on my agent's view it

said "asbestos". Any advice on what

this could be, and if FHA would approve

a house with unsealed asbestos or

cement board? I've attached an image

of the front of the home. It is

located in Minnesota. Thanks!
