Clay soil and homes

Asked March 26, 2014, 3:02 PM EDT

Would my new home be in danger of sliding if the soil beneath it is clay? I suspect it is because under the mulch is a light yellow color. The home is on a slope that eventually reaches a city block to a creek or river in Silverton Pioneer Platt subdivision.
