published 6 months ago by BiggerPockets.com : Joshua Dorkin and Brandon Turner

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 58 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...
