So im looking to buy a house but the draw back is this places termites on the outside decks and patio (which i will tear down). the inspection also state it has termites in the exterior and sub area, plywall sheating in sub area, evidence of fungus/dryrot, excessive moisture noted at sub area and excessive moisture was noted at flaky stucco exterior. just note that this isnt happening throughout the house just certain parts.
my question/s would be should i even bother with it? it seems that the inspector made lots of recommendations to the current owner. I just dont want to be 'surprise' and come to find out there are more issues under these. what else can i do to make sure im not running into a 70K renovation vs a 30K renovation.
will attached a picture later. thanks
