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.
