    How to Recognize a Good Real Estate Investment Deal | Epic Real Estate Investing

    The answer to just about any real estate investing question you can think of is… “It depends.” The question, “Is this a good deal?” No exception. I hear this specific question all the time, and I see the question asked in online forums all the time. I mean ALL THE TIME.
