While shopping for a new home, I found out and learned a lot about land erosion/landslides. Where I am trying to buy home is near an active landslide, something that could be devastating for a homeowner.
So first let me explain how erosion happens. Basically when the soil cannot hold more water than its weight, it can slide down to the slope. On places where there’s cliffs like in Daly City where I am trying to buy a home, this can cause huge landslides. When this happens to the land nearby your house, it can be devastating as you can easily lose your home.
