The areas at which the skylights penetrated the roof were protected by sealant instead of metal flashing.  Sealants have a much shorter lifespan than metal flashing and will eventually dry, shrink and crack, providing a point of entry for moisture intrusion of the roof structure and increased chances of leakage. This sealant should be checked annually and re-applied as necessary. The Inspector recommends installation of properly-installed skylight flashing.

I. The inspector shall inspect from ground level or the eaves: A. the roof-covering materials; B. the gutters; C. the downspouts; D. the vents, flashing, skylights, chimney, and other roof penetrations; and E. the general structure of the roof from the readily accessible panels, doors or stairs. II. The inspector shall describe: A. the type of roof-covering materials. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. observed indications of active roof leaks. IV. The inspector is not required to: A. walk on any roof surface. B. predict the service life expectancy. C. inspect underground downspout diverter drainage pipes. D. remove snow, ice, debris or other conditions that prohibit the observation of the roof surfaces. E. move insulation. F. inspect antennae, satellite dishes, lightning arresters, de-icing equipment, or similar attachments. G. walk on any roof areas that appear, in the inspectors opinion, to be unsafe. H. walk on any roof areas if doing so might, in the inspector's opinion, cause damage. I. perform a water test. J. warrant or certify the roof. K. confirm proper fastening or installation of any roof-covering material.

I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding. 

Here is a nice maintenance guide from Lowe's to help.

IN NI NP O
Septic Tank
Left Side of Front Yard

The home was connected to a private onsite wastewater system in which sewage drains by a gravity fed sewer pipe to a tank. Typically, tanks have two chambers. Solids settle to the bottom of the first chamber (and must be pumped out periodically) while liquid drains to series of perforated pipes installed in a leach field. Liquid drains into the soil of the leach field and pathogens, bacteria, viruses, cysts, and other contaminants are removed by bacterial action and filtration through the soil. This system requires inspection by a qualified contractor. According to the seller, the last service was completed in 2014.
