Opinions wanted: Considering purchasing a house with vermiculite insulation in the attic that may contain asbestos. [cross-post with some other subreddits]

Hi folks, just like the title says, I'm considering purchasing a house where the sellers have disclosed that there is vermiculite insulation in the attic which may contain asbestos. My understanding is it's fine if it's not disturbed, though I don't know if this effectively renders the attic unusable.

Anyone else been in a similar situation, and if so, what did you do? How concerned should I be for the presence of asbestos elsewhere in the house that might cause an immediate hazard, and also implications for resale value?
