Check out the new sinkhole report on floodinsights.com. There is also a statewide map of sinkholes on there. There are more than 15,000 verified sinkhole and subsidence reports listed.

As others have stated, no not all are listed as sink holes. If there are any known sinkhole or settlement issues that it should be disclosed by the listing agent. Sometimes if it is a bank selling a home, they dont always disclose the facts and the listing agent would not know them. You really just have to do your own due dilligence on anything bank owned. You can find info on the hernando county property appraisers website, but dont rely on that alone. You should also check with the building department regarding prior permit history, they are very good at keeping records and if there were any permits pulled for engineering or sinkhole related repairs the county will have a record of it.

Not at all!
Some are listed as short sales!
If you are looking at the lowest end of the value bracket, you should expect to find homes with issues.
If sinkholes are going to keep you awake at night you should choose another location. North Florida has a lot of real estate from which to choose.
Ask the real estate professional, with whom you work, to show you the heat map regarding sink holes for the area. Now, it may be beneficial to take a step or two back and ask yourself, "Do insurance companies spend $150,000 or remediation that has no value?"
When you work past the hysteria, you might see a different picture.

Best of success to you,

Not at all - there are many homes currently for sale that have never had any settlement issues of that nature.

If you would like a Sink Hole map, contact me. That 'hole' area (get, hole area? lol) has more spots than a leaopard!

I'm pretty sure that I have access to more Sink Hole info than anyone else on this forum.
