Publisher's Summary

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.

In this audiobook, you will learn:

  • The basics behind how our economy works and how to make it work for you
  • The four major phases of the economic cycle: Expansion, Peak, Recession, Recovery
  • How to know when economic shifts are likely to occur and strategies to withstand those impending changes
  • The positive and negative impacts the economic cycle has on real estate investing and businesses
  • Strategies to continue to profit and grow your business during every point in the economic cycle
  • Multiple strategies to modify your investing tactics - not only to survive economic downturn, but to also thrive!

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

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

More about economics

More about economics than recession proof real estate. And more about when to invest and not invest rather than how to be resilient.

Audio Format is Bad for this Book

I had trouble following along with the content in this book in audio format. There is a lot of discussions similar to, if this goes up then that goes down but this other part could go up too and then that could cause this other thing to go down. I might try to go through the content again in Kindle format to see if the information sticks better.
