Another common sign is cracked walls in the basement. This should especially hit you as a red flag if you have tall bushes or any trees outside relatively close to the house. Too often these get planted way too close to the house when their small, and as they continue to grow their root systems and up hitting the foundation of the house. The same is true if you’re finding doors suddenly won’t close or all the doorway seem just a little bit askew.
