Hi Bigger Pockets. I recently purchased and have begun reading J. Scott's book on flipping houses. That is what led me here to Bigger Pockets. I have just begun looking in to different ways to get into real estate investing and this website looks like a great resource for information and to get to know others and find out what has and has not worked for them. I am excited to learn more here!

Jeff, welcome to the real estate investment market place! I would like to be a resource to you for finding off market properties in Houston and the surrounding areas! Shoot me an email and let me know if I can help in any way.
Welcome to Bigger Pockets. BP is full of resources. You will find resources here from blogs to pod casts and forums. You can also send messages to members which is my favorite part of the website.
Welcome to Biggerpockets @Jeff Dougherty !
Wishing you success on your real estate venture!
Welcome @Jeff Dougherty
What area of town and what price range are you looking for?
Hi @Jeff Dougherty . Take your time looking around BP and soaking it all in and hopefully the niche/strategy you want to pursue will become obvious to you. Good luck!
Join the RICH Club in Houston (local REIA) and start networking! Books are fine but taking "action" is the key. Joining a club and attending meetings is a baby step in the action process. One final thought is "be patient". The Houston area is a Seller's market right now with very little correction in SFH's below $350k. One would think that the market would be softening given the drop in oil prices but it's still a little early. Good luck.
Thank you all for the warm welcome, and good advice.
The Houston market is one of the busier regions so you will have no problem meeting people. Going to meet-ups and spending time on Bigger Pockets will increase your network fast.
Best of luck to you and I hope to see you soon.
Hi Mr. Dougherty,
Welcome to BP! I would tell you how great podcasts and forums are but I see that all the responses before me have complimented the sites wealth of knowledge that can lead to your wealth! Happy learning and enjoy the site!
