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:

Notable quotes from the Episode:

“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.”
