Termites - Is this a bigger issue than we think?We just had the termite inspection done on a home we're considering buying, its as-is bank owned, so we are responsible for repairs. We got an estimate for $800 in termite damage repair. Should we be worried there are still existing termites in the home and the inspector did a thorough job? Can we ask to open up the wall in the room where the damage was found, in the base molding? I'm worried our realtor is downplaying the issue to close the deal. Any advice is welcome, we've never dealt with termites before! Supposedly they are "common" here and there are no gutters, so lots of moisture around the house.
