In the end it was the massive $81,000 estimate for remediation of the soil and ground water contamination due to a leaky oil tank that was removed but not cleaned up. The sellers are a family that are liquidating the estate of their parents and the sibling apparently don't want to clean up the mess thier folks left. They want the buyer to do it.
Some one may, but there are too many variables in an environmental cleanup that goes under a house for me to feel comfortable. My guess is this place will sit a while longer and then the family will realize they need to bite the bullet. Maybe we'll still be looking then!
