Recession Proof Real Estate Investing w/ J Scott

Recession Proof Real Estate Investing w/ J Scott

J Scott, entrepreneur, investor, author, and co-host of The BiggerPockets Business Podcast has flipped over 400 houses and written best selling books on the subject. The irony though is that over a decade later, he regrets flipping houses!

In this episode, J  offers valuable insights into why he wished he hadn’t flipped houses, how a fixed-rate long-term debt becomes an asset, and how you can take advantage of depreciation to offset your active income.

 J is the author of four best-selling books on real estate investing, including The Book on Negotiating Real Estate and Recession Proof Real Estate Investing.

Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:

[04:31] Four ways to make returns in real estate

[06:23] Why owning real estate is a hedge against inflation

[09:16] Levers, tweaks, and your parameters for your buying criteria

[33:29] Two big ways to get tax credits on your properties

[40:43] J Scott’s buying journey

[50:51] Why J Scott got into real estate

Notable quotes from the Episode:

“Life is all about all the relationships with people that have helped you along the way. “

“The real asset these days is the loan... it's literally the best hedge against inflation."

"Don't think about finding a property. Think about finding a great loan product. Apply that to a decent property, now you've got a great investment."

“Make sure all of your investments are basically recession-resistant for at least three years.”
