Thought I would write a post to introduce myself, new to the forums.
My name is John Hogg, Me and my wife Xanthy Hogg have recently started investing in real estate in a much less passive role.
We have already poured through all the podcasts, blogs and forum discussions we can and gained so much from it all. Thank you to everyone who contributes.
I am a licensed plumbing contractor who performs fix and flip remodels on the side currently. We just closed the sale on our second flip and are currently looking for our next project.
We are currently working towards pursuing more fix and flip opportunities as well as buy and hold rentals.
Thanks again to everyone involved in the forums, I hope to be able to contribute any of my knowledge and pay it forward where I can.
Welcome aboard John and best of luck investing!
Thanks so much for the warm welcome Andrew.

Thanks for the welcome! Yeah, I guess I have to claim him :) .. we're Cousins. I grew up in Caldwell too. Probably just a year or two behind both of you. I believe I got on your wholesale list a year or two ago, but we're currently looking for our next project and are always interested in those deals when they come up.
Thanks for the welcome and your helpful tips. I'll be sure those features out.
Thanks, are you investing there from out of state, did you previously live in the area?
True,definitely lots of growth in the area.. too much almost.
Thanks so much!
I am out of State and have yet to purchase anything in Idaho. Still working and finding the right deal.
Nice, well if you ever need insight into anything in the area feel free to ask.
Thank you. I appreciate your offer to help. Same goes to you. Please let me know if you have any questions or needs.
