While this area is known for some homes having foundation issues, they are all not bad. There's an old saying that goes like this..."don't throw the baby out with the bath water." If you choose to offer on a home in this area I highly recommend you hire a geo-tech engineer to inspect the property. he will check the foundation, the soil, the history of the area with the city. A variance of up to 3/4 of an inch on the slab level is acceptable. I just went through an escrow on a property in this area and it passed with flying colors. Knowing that you will need to do extra inspections, perhaps you Realtor could negotiate $$ toward your closing costs to help offset this cost. A geo-tech engineer will cost you anywhere from $900-$1300.
