    1.  It's zoned residential,  so local ordinances ban business signs and any parking that interferes with the neighbors.

    2. Specific businesses need permits and inspections  (like day cares, massage therapy or hair stylists).

    3.  Neighbor complaints.

    4. Excess garbage from a business. 

    5. Becoming a focus for theft and break ins.

    6. People going onto the neighbors property.

    The risks are the same as every other business...mainly being undercapitalized and unable to advertise your services to potential customers.
