Hmm....that is a great question. I'd recommend working with an agent who is an expert on the area and can help you learn more about that specific property and it's history. To find an expert agent in the area, just click on the yellow button on the property's listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!
