Hello everyone.  I am just joining BiggerPockets and I am located in Austin, Texas.  I am very new to real estate investing, but after careful thought and planning with my wife, we are ready to dive in.  We are very interested in a Buy and Hold strategy.

I do have some basic construction skills, so I can spot things in homes we are looking to purchase and estimate how much it might cost to repair.  I also know a bit about project management, so if we decide to do a more major remodel on an investment, I can properly plan it out and keep it in check.

I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello to everyone.  

hey welcome to bigger pockets. You might wanna set up some keyword alerts, for say Austin or buy and hold. And check out the podcasts, I like to listen in the car.

Welcome! Buy and hold is good! I buy down in San Antonio. Love investing in TX.

Welcome John. I suggest our participate in any of the many REI MeetUps here in Austin. They are free and you'll meet seasoned investors who will be glad to help answer questions. I have a MeetUp on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7pm...message me if you're interested in meeting with a great group of investors.

Thank you everyone.  I appreciate the advise and invitations.
