Fixing very uneven concrete floors in existing houses?

Builders and contractors: is there anything that can be done, after-the-fact, about very
uneven, sloped concrete floors?

I'm starting to look at houses, and a number of them have bedrooms or offices on the ground level with very uneven floors, generally sloping severely from one side to the other. Though they have tile or carpet, it is evident that this is laid on top of the poured concrete of the foundation, which is what's actually sloping. Basically, it appears that rooms which would previously have been extra storage beneath the main living space are (sloppily) converted into more living space.
My question is: can anything be done about this, in an existing house, to make the floors approximately level? Assume that knocking out a wall and backing up a cement mixer is not a viable option.
To some people, I'm sure it seems ridiculous to even consider a house with properties like this, but property values are VERY high around here...
