forgot to mention/clarify that realtors' advice on cheap curb appeal and furniture arrangement, clearing clutter, showing off to best advantage ideas (painting, etc.) lighting, etc. are usually quite sound...they are experts in this area (lots of bang for the buck) in realizing maximum sales price versus time on the market issues, which is of course what they earn their commission for, its all other advice that I don't trust them for!

Is it only the second floor? I would think that foundation problems would cause problems at least as bad on the first floor also.

If the problem is the ground moving, the cause could be anywhere between your house and the bottom of the slope. I've seen several instances where someone change the creek and caused erosion downstream. The erosion took away the support along the bottom of the slope next to the creek. The whole hillside, from ridge to creek, slowly moves down to the creek. Same thing happens when a new road is cut into the slope.
