About the Authors

J SCOTT spent much of his early career in Silicon Valley, where he held management positions at several Fortune 500 companies, including Microsoft and eBay. In 2008, J and his wife Carol decided to quit their corporate jobs, start a family, and focus on real estate investing. In the past ten years, they have bought, built, rehabbed, sold, lent-on and held over $60M in property all around the country. J is also the co-host of The BiggerPockets Business Podcast and the author of four books on real estate investing—including the best-selling pair The Book on Flipping Houses and The Book on Estimating Rehab Costs—which have sold more than 300,000 copies combined and have helped investors from around the world get started with real estate.

DAVE MEYER has spent his career working in the technology industry while also investing in real estate. In 2016, he took the opportunity to combine his professional passions for real estate and technology and joined BiggerPockets, where he now serves as the VP of Data and Analytics. Dave has been a rental property investor in Colorado since 2010 and invests passively nationwide. He's also the host of the BiggerPockets On the Market podcast, which started in 2022 and is growing rapidly as a one-stop source for all things real estate analytics. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling, eating sandwiches, and being outside. He currently lives in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
