Would you be cautious?

Recommended Posts

This isn't an inspection for me, I've just noticed these houses near my home that overlook a golf course. If this was an inspection, what if anything would you say about these homes built on a man-made rise, on the edge of a steep hill? Personally, this area wouldn't be my first choice to build my home.

I'd find cracks in the driveways and take pictures of those.

No cracks, I'd report what is there, with plenty of exterior shots.

Maybe they drove piles (pilings) 40 feet down, we don't know. But in 5 years, there will be some signs if there is any movement at all. It's the first few years that are going to be in question.

Could ask for engineering reports or just recommend the client obtain reports.
