Termite DamageWE recently made an offer on a house in Montclair that was accepted. Its a beautiful house with great updates throughout. The problem is that the house had extensive termite damage which was discovered when it was first listed 2 months ago. The sellers had to take the house off the market then and they spend $ 40,000 on repairs because the damage was so extensive! The repaired or replaced suport beams, floor joists, floors etcDuring our home inspection we found out that the house still has damage in the walls (exterior wall i believe) which essentially cannot be repaired because it would be a MAJOR renovation that would essentially destroy the home.We are now hesitant to move forward with this home because we don't know if we'll be able to sell it again. Structurally the house is safe and all the repairs fixed most problems. How do we go about this? Do we ask the sellers to drop the price or do we drop this and move on?December 17 2013 - Montclair00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
