When you look at the relatively low cost of around $100 my opinion would be why not. If you find active termites or conducive conditions it would be wise to treat or correct. Unchecked problems could turn into $1000's... more
I think you should definitely look into this. If you can, you should contact a company that could help you with the repairs. I know that in that scenario, you'd at least have a number that you can argue for a reduction. If they refuse to fix it, you should be able to save the money that you'll need to fix it yourself.

When you have an offer on your home with a qualified buyer, you can feel more confident in putting a contract on another new home with a contingency to close, not sell!
