Rent's due... or is it?
From quarantines to eviction moratoriums to a plummeting stock market, COVID-19 has upended seemingly everything -- and today we talk through what it all means for real estate investors.
J Scott, author of Recession-Proof Real Estate Investing, and Scott Trench, author of Set for Life and CEO of BiggerPockets, join Brandon and David for a roundtable discussion packed with perspective and insight.
We begin with a high-level analysis of today's economy, and discuss how you can fortify your portfolio in the face of a likely recession (there's still time!). Then, the guys take on your most pressing questions -- starting with, "what happens if my tenant doesn't pay rent?"
*NOTE: If you want to skip directly to audience Q&A, that section starts at 1 hour, 5 minutes.*
Whether you're a brand new investor nervous about getting started... or a veteran waiting for the right opportunity to deploy capital, this episode will give you a chance to take a deep breath and assess the playing field.
We hope you enjoy this special episode, recorded March 18... Stay safe, take care of yourselves, and stay tuned for more Coronavirus content across all BiggerPockets platforms in the days and weeks ahead.
