Does my wife and I need to get a real estate license to invest?

2 Replies


My Wife and I are excited to get started in real estate investing as a team. We currently are deciding between focusing on either Flipping Single Family homes or Buying and Holding. My question is do you think it is essential to get a real estate license to be successful? If so, do you think both me and my wife need one or would one between us suffice? 



Having a RE license is definitely not a must. If you do decide to get one you will get to keep that commission of buying and selling the property for yourselves and only one of you will need one. Best of luck James!
