Early on in my investing career I purchased a very nice single-family rental property near Albuquerque NM. Several years later my property management company informed me that a neighbor had complained that the previous residents were cooking meth and selling it out of the house. This set off a chain reaction of panic, abandonment, con artists and financial stress. I shared this story with my friend Paul Moore on his podcast "How To Lose Money" and he enjoyed it so much that he turned it into an article on Bigger Pockets. If you click the link below you can access a pdf version of that article in order to find out the lessons I learned and how I avoided a very expensive mistake.
