A house Im interested in had to go off market to repair damage due to termites…. It was a dump house purchased for cheap and the people flipped it… it that concerning? Can you really permanently repair and keep termites away?

Bad place to get advice. We are accountants. Go to Reddit and find a construction, housing, real estate, etc. subreddit you ask and you’ll get 200 answers from those with expertise and experience.

This is going to heavily depend on your market. There are areas of the country where termite history is very common.

Exactly.

Find out who did the work and research them. If the sellers chose a company that you would have chosen to do the work then you’re probably safe. If it’s a company that has terrible reviews or is unheard of then probably best to walk away.

Termites are not a dealbreaker ... in my market (LA) nearly every home older than a certain age has termites. I think the estimate is up to 80% of homes have termites. I’ve done termite treatment for every rental property I own.

Yes, it can be repaired. The challenge is finding all the damage and getting rid of the infestation. If you don’t find it all, there could still be structure with insect damage. If you don’t get rid of the infestation, you risk all your good structure getting eaten again. Figure out exactly what work was done.
