When you are buying a home for investment purposes, overruns on budgets and time frame are the two most common ways that an investor can lose their shirt. Buying any home involves a certain amount of risk. However, when you are buying a property as-is for investment purposes and waiving inspections, things can get ugly fast.

Over the years, we have identified 5 simple ways to determine whether the home is a potential money pit. We've determined these 5 ways by making an enormous amount of mistakes ourselves. Our goal is to help you learn from our mistakes and ensure profitability on your own deals.
