Looking back, I now realize that the complete termite report was not provided in my disclosure package--instead, the first page of the report was included (which shows the company name and what type of termites they found) as well as a certificate for drywood fumigation being done (they should have done beetle fumigation instead but that's another story). I did an as-is offer. The rest of the report documented several repairs needed, which I did not see when I made the offer.<br/>I am concerned that I negotiated for the home on incomplete information--I did not see the full report, which called out significant beetle damage. If I had seen that, my offer would have been different to account for the repair costs (in the 1000s of dollars). Am I out of luck since it was an as-is offer? Or is the seller responsible after close of escrow if they failed to provide complete and accurate disclosure documents?<br \><br \>1 reply Thu, 07 Nov 2013 07:44:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Complete-pest-report-omitted-from-disclosure-package-who%27s-fault/518224/ 2013-11-07T07:44:00Z My home at 406 Iris St, Redwood City was refinanced, not sold on July 23, 2009.

The back of my house faces a park, the front of my house is not opposite another house. I have updated my home, kitchen,&nbsp;baths, appliances and floors.&nbsp;&nbsp; I have even put in a gate in the fence&nbsp;that opens to the park. For years Zillow has shown my house as the lowest priced in the development. I really don't get it&nbsp;and&nbsp;it is disappointing. I wish Zillow would&nbsp; value my home fairly and not lower the value because I have owned my home all these years.</p><p>Zillow&nbsp;valued the same model home that is now for sale at $825,000 over $900,000 last year. &nbsp;This home has sold &nbsp;- 4 times and is located on the two streets and the back yard sandwiched between two large homes and is trashed inside. I have to ask how and why.</p><p><font>I realize you get these questions all the time but I really have to ask how fair is Zillow when I see the value of my home, with the best location valued so low.
