Successful real estate investors know when to walk away from a potential real estate investment. They know how to spot the signs of a bad investment. Every deal isn’t going to be worth the time, money and effort. So, here are some tips to know when to walk away from a potential real estate investment!

  • Make sure your income potential is immediate. Don’t invest for some “huge payout” at some indefinite date in the future.
  • Lack of income documentation on a rental property. If a seller is selling an existing rental property, make sure you see proof of rental rates, vacancies and property profits.
  • The property is in a bad neighborhood. Keep your eye on properties where the neighborhood values are expected to increase. A good property in a bad neighborhood is not a good investment.
  • The property is outside of the country. If you’re still looking for tips on investment properties, you likely don’t have enough experience to do well investing in international real estate.
  • Large upfront cash requirements. Know your budget. A killer deal means nothing if you don’t have a means to renovate the property so that you’ll see a return on your investment.
