Black ring around tailpipe

I'm looking at a 96 Blazer to purchase for my 16-year old son. The tailpipe has a black sticky film around the tailpipe. What could cause this and potential cost of repair? Should I move onto another vehicle? The asking price is $3,000... female with no automotive experience. HELP!!

My personal opinion is that you are looking way too close if the only thing you can find is an exhaust ring around the tailpipe. But thats not a bad thing. I would say that this is relatively normal after product of the exhaust and combustion process. Drive the truck and see how it runs and post back with any other concerns.
