Wavy slab floor

So I'm looking at a property that I may want to purchase, a slab-on-grade brick house in Cleveland, Ohio, built in the 1950s, and the floors are wavy where they meet the slab. Not by a ton, but fairly noticably so. Normally this would make me run away, but there is absolutely no separation in the bricks (or any evidence of tuckpointing to hide separation; those suckers are in the same place they were when Eisenhower was president...), nor cracks in the walls/ceilings, and the yard and sidewalk out front share the same kind of wavyness. This wasn't cited on the muni POS, so I'm wondering if this sounds like a broken slab or just a wavy grade. Any info or advice is appreciated, thanks!

Wavy slab floor

when you can describe the color ' blue ' over a phone, we'll be able to actually SEE a picture of what you post we have luck flattening floors prior to diamond polishing but your issue sounds different

i know i'm the only 1 who can't translate the ' muni POS ' could you also translate that for me ' POS ' does sound familiar to me but not in this circumstance then again, perhaps my guess IS correct & we just both think similarly regarding govt & its employees

Wavy slab floor

Could be anyone of these.

I'll make a guess the poster is from France or Canada and it's this one.
