As every SF resident knows, we live in an area susceptible to earthquakes. As such, before buying any structure it is advisable to have a geological inspection to determine how the property you are about to buy has been affected by the changes to the underlying ground. Also, a buyer will want to get as much insight as possible regarding the potential risks associated with future changes to the underlying ground. For example, is your back deck one land shift away from collapsing? Does your future home sit on bedrock or landfill?
Buying San Francisco real estate is the biggest financial decision most people ever make. As such, it is worth assessing the geological risks before making the decision to buy.
