Recession-Proof Real Estate Investing

By: J Scott

About the book:

The 2008 Great Recession was a time of economic turmoil and disruption. After the crash, many real estate investors lost everything they’d worked so hard to achieve—but not every investor suffered that fate. Even during the worst parts of the downturn, some real estate professionals were able to grow and scale their businesses. Not only did they come out the other side unscathed, but they also created a better financial situation than ever before.

In Recession-Proof Real Estate Investing, accomplished investor J Scott dives into the theory of economic cycles and the real-world strategies for harnessing them to your advantage. With a glossary of terms, articulate visuals, and clear instructions for every type of investor, this easy-to-follow guide will show you how to make money during all of the market’s twists and turns.

Prepare yourself to take any recession in stride! After reading this e-book, you will never be intimidated by a market shift—and you’ll never look at your real estate business the same way again.
