Hassel and profitable are relative. How do you define profitable or hassle? Also, location will be a variable in your search.
Interview several local brokers in the area you are looking to invest and interview them. Questions like stability of community and/or construction of building, age, previous tenants etc. would be in the mix. A good broker will be informed and able to answer your questions during the interview.
Good Luck in your search.
