I would advise you to get a bee expert out to the house to tell you how they can be removed. Hopefully he can also tell you if they are inside the walls etc. You would need to know just how much damage those bees could cause to the house. I think if they are inside walls setting up housekeeping it could be a problem, but I am no bee expert.
Water anywhere its not expected is a concern also.
You don't say if this home is a foreclosed, short or regular sell. If it is a foreclosed home, I would have inspections done prior to making an offer, to know what price to offer, taking into account any major repairs needed. If it is a short sale, I might inspect before offer, or wait until approval, do inspections, then renegotiate based on findings. If it is a regular sale, I would make an offer, after acceptance then do inspections.
Your area may have different procedures, based on contracts, and you should check with your agent to see what they might recommend.... more
