Buying house - History of Termites Advice

Hi, We have recently seen a home that we are interested in priced at 339k
(3 bed-2bath) in Sharon,MA. Only thing is we are worried about is it had termites and the seller did had them treated with some 5 yrs warranty. Is the property valued less bcoz of the termites? Or will we have any problems when we will resell it in future. Is it fine to go ahead with our offer or not. If yes what do you think we should try to offer. Plz advice.

Steve, is it your standard practice to wait 1½ years before answering questions that you are asked?

How do your clients and potential clients put up with such promptness?

And for those that didn't see the other answers the original poster already received at the time:

There's an old saying about termites. If you haven't had them, treated them and have them under control.....you will sooner or later. If there was little or no structural damage it shouldn't be a problem.

Already answered on the other thread.  It is pointless to answer again.
