help !!!
we had a home inspected by an engineer that we are considering purchasing It was built in 1950 and does not have a basement but a crawl space. upon inspection there was a bit of water in space. There had been a snow storm 2 days before inspection and maybe the water is from melting snow but the temps remained in the below freezing range so i didn;t think snow could be melting.
there was no sign of mildew or cracks or rotted wood also there was vapor barriers installed
the engineer was not too concerned but i am. on inspection gutters were found to be pitched wrong and he recommended fixing that and bringing it farther away from house. could that be the problem or something more serious? how often are high water tables the problem and how could we find out if an area is known for high water table.

Please respond ASAP we need to decide if we should buy this house. Iam afraid its the money pit!!!
