First time home buyer, should I buy a house with bowed basement walls if the seller fixes it?

I just got quoted upwards of $20,000 to fix bowed basement walls in a house I was in the process of buying. My plan would be to have the seller pay for all of it. They’d have to rip up carpet, tear up walls, move plumbing, and more, so it’d likely end up costing over 20k. But I’m wondering, is it worth the headache? There’s mild maintenance with the anchors they’d put in. At this point should I walk away? Are there caveats to having strengthened basement walls?
