you must determine how deep the cracks are. they could simply be surface cracks which occur in older plaster or they could be deep exterior cracks that will require much more attention and money to fix. if i think it is something of concern i have my contractor look at it before i make an offer.
last month i was ready to put an offer on two townhouses that needed quite a bit of work but when my contractor looked at the cracks he advised me to stay away because they would require extensive repair which would leave me in the red when i would go to sell.
