Fixer-uppers can be great investment properties, but sometimes they're more trouble then they're worth. Here are five signs you've found a nightmare of a fixer-upper. 


1: Roof Problems 

It's not uncommon for a few shingles to need replacing, however, if the roof sags or there are major leaks there could be some major costs involved in fixing it.


2: Foundational Issues 

If you find issues with the foundation of the house, you may be looking at tens of thousands of dollars to repair the problems.

3: Infestations 

If there is termite damage or active termites, you're looking at a money pit.

4: Antiquated Electrical Wires 

Old electrical wiring is a major issue you should avoid.

5: Pre-1970s Hazard 

Watch out for asbestos and lead-based paint for houses built before the 1970s.
