I am not sure that you are working with a Realtor, who will be your Buyers Agent, one who is working with you, for you and in your best interest, and who will assist you every step of the way!!! Do not do this on your own, you obviously worry about what you are buying....
First work with a trusted Buyers agent, who is usually paid by the seller's side if a property that is
listed in the multiple listing service....
For structural issues you need a structural engineer to check the house out at your cost
A good inspector (and never ever buy a home without having a home inspector check it out for you,
first you will get to know the home, and the inspector will find all minor (you will take care of once
you own the property) and all Major problems that may make you not to want to buy the home anymore,
or you discuss the issues with the owner and either the owners agrees to make repairs or pay you
to do them, for that latter one you will need estimates from professionals.
For insect infestation you can get a specialist double check the property, water leaks should be
visible, or the home inspector may have suspicions and let you know.
Work with a good Realtor if you need recommendations let me know.
