Before you buy a home, always, yes always get a thorough home inspection for all local problems. If there is a well, always, that is always get the well inspection. This goes for anywhere in the country. And you be the one that selects the inspectors, as you are the one paying the bill which you pay outside of the closing of the sale, and the inspector will be your inspector and you know not working for the agent or seller.

If you have a wetness problem under the home it can be solved. It needs a French Drain, around the home to stop it from getting under the home. The problem of the wet crawl space, should always be solved, not let go on and on. It is simple enough to do, that you can solve it yourself if you are at least a little handy. Takes a trench, special pipe to take the water, and a lot of gravel and a place to send the water.

Do not mistake truth for unfounded fears.

The burden of proof is on you. Just because you think you've never seen it does not mean it doesn't exist.

Never ever rely on a real estate agent to tell you anything. They know nothing, they make a practice of not knowing, they're basically clueless by choice. They may be nice people but their motto is "if we don't say anything substantive or give opinions, nobody can come back to us later and say 'well, you said this and that'. If we never say anything, we're safe!"

The OP of this thread isn't trying to change all your ways, he's just pointing out why most of the building practices sucked in the recent past. If you've lived there a long time you just don't know any different. "Outsiders" know the difference. I'm a former house builder and if I was looking in that area I would have noticed all that the OP pointed out and much much more. Things natives of that area wouldn't notice.

Since when is Pagosa Springs in the Four Corners Region?

Even Bayfield and Durango are more associated with the San Jaun Mtns than the Four Corners.

Just sayin'
