BIG TIME. I lost my job in the real estate field two years ago. I was planning on working at least ten more years. I am disabled but my company made accommodations for me. I just bought an investment property three months before I got laid off. I have not been able to sell it. I can't rent it for enough to cover my mortgage payment. So I'm paying for two houses. I am going thru my savings. I just got approved for disability. My monthly benefits are 1/3rd of what I was clearing. I'm screwed.
