I am a local Boise area real estate investor that has just moved back to town from Atlanta. I am new to BP and very excited about the networking and resources it offers. I am interested in wholesaling, cash flow, and probably some flipping around Idaho and in other markets.
Are there any meetups or associations for REI here in Boise? Thanks in advance for any help that you might provide.
Hi @Logan Knight The Boise Investor Group meets the 2nd Thursday of every month. Our next meetup is this week. Great opportunity for networking & education. You can visit our website at BoiseInvestorGroup.com or check up our meetup page at meetup.com/boiseinvestorgroup. Look forward to seeing you out!

Welcome back to Boise, @Logan Knight
You are going to find a great wealth of information on BP. I also second Lisa's advice about going to the Boise Investor Group meetup. I just found them myself and will be there for the first time this week.
I also found a few other groups on MeetUp.com and am excited to check them out as well. Create a free account and use the search term "Boise" and you'll find many different groups to chose from. I would suggest attending a few of each and find out which ones peak your interest.
Good luck to you and I hope to see you at a meet and greet somewhere!
Welcome @Logan Knight
@Logan Knight - Thanks for introducing yourself! Welcome to the Boise BP Community!
Thanks everyone! I am looking forward to my first deal here in Boise.
@Lisa Kohl thanks for the invite! I won't be able to attend this week but I'll be there next week for sure. I am also referring my partner to the group.
Welcome @Logan Knight back to Boise. There are great resources on BP and in Boise. I have written a few articles on investing in Boise from a distance on my BP blog if they are of interest to you. Best of luck on your first RE investment.
