@Mark Denning How do you know the seller isn't going to fix or help pay for the problems, if you never ask? Both times I had inspection concerns I always asked and got something in return.
We have just closed on a short sale that need repairs. After receiving a few quotes we went back to the seller and had the price reduced. Even with a bank involved there is wiggle room.
Get a few quotes and see the damage. Fixing these problems may not cost that much. The inspection reports are often daunting but really the problems may not be as large as you think or deal breakers.
