The house is located in Santee, CA - a town just east of San Diego. The soil (or lack thereof) is mostly solid clay.
The agent is going to do some more research on how the repair was done and said that we have five additional days to cancel our agreement to buy the place if we so desire.
Thanks for the advice on hiring a home inspector that is NOT affiliated with the Realtor.
