This is one of the worst foundation issues I've seen. It was bought for fix n flip, but it may end up being a scrape n build. One end of the house was 3 degrees out of level.

Definitely time to call the foundation repair contractors/engineers. That's going to be expensive.

Wow! I haven't come across cracking that bad before. The worst I have seen was an addition that was cracking at the seem due to settling.
What did you use to determine it was 3 degrees out of level?

Spoke with the RE investor that bought it, today. He said, "Oh yeah, we know about it. Not too bad compared to others we've had repaired." ... oookay.

They normally dump $70k - $80k into their houses. This has to be eating up a large portion of that. Although, I'm sure the price was right.
