Investing in real estate can be very rewarding financially but at times it is not for the faint of heart. This is especially true when buyers are not vigilant and diligent. Real estate investors need to exercise due diligence in a number of areas before committing to purchase real property. While investigating a home or property, issues may crop up that can be described as either cosmetic defects, fault lines, or land mines. Cosmetic defects are minor faults in a home are easy to spot and fix. They have very little, if any, impact on the value of the investment. Real estate fault lines are visually detectable on the surface but they require further investigation below the surface in order to assess potential impacts on the property’s value. Real estate land mines, if not discovered before investing in a property, have the potential to ruin your day, and your investment. https://www.brettcairns.com/real-estate-investing-8-fault-lines-and-land-mines
