single horizontal hairline crack in stucco

i am looking to bid on a stucco home about 16 years old in Houston, TX. The home has a single horizontal hairline crack in the stucco, about 4' ft off the ground. This crack runs about 60% of the house; the other 40% has windows etc, & the stucco is not cracked. There r no cracks in the inside walls. The bankrupt homeowner says it is real stucco (as opposed to synthetic stucco).
I am a attaching some pics showing the crack.
Any opinions if this hairline crack is a serious issue? what might be the cause?
I hear Houston has soft clay soil, so wondering if it is settling of the house?
Can crack be fixed? Wondering how to proceed?
