Topic: Need an opinion on a home built on a hill

Hello, We were looking at homes and saw one we just had to have. However there is one problem with it. It is built very close to a hill and I am curious how much of a problem it would be. The home is built on a steel frame and has beams going 40 feet into the ground. 

Will this be a problem in the future? here are some images

The problem we are facing is that we are trying to figure out what the chances are of that house making a trip down the hill in the future.
