licensing?

5 Replies

is it a good idea to get your real estate license if you want to ultimately be an investor. I hear people in real estate say you dont need it and some say its a good way to start. Little confused cause i really dont want to waste the time if i dont need it.

Here are some good blog posts regarding the question:

In a nutshell, you don't NEED a RE license to be successful, but there are benefits to having one. It's up to you to weigh the pros and cons and determine which course of action is in your best interest.

There are many posts and discussions on the topic already on here, my quick thought is that it is a fairly quick process to get one and provides you with some advantages in terms of finding your own deals and spending less in commissions if you list your own properties.
