Buying a home with backyard sloping towards house?

13 years ago

We are first-time home buyers and have found a house we love. The only thing concerning us is that the backyard slopes towards the house. The side of the backyard slopes downward away from the house. This is a split level with a finished basement. The basement is spotless and doesn't appear to have ever been wet, and the yard looks to be in great shape. The slope is gentle enough that we wouldn't have any trouble mowing, but we are worried about water and concerned about what could happen in the future, even if it looks good now.

Any advice on this situation? I appreciate any help. Thank you.
