Advantages of Having a Professional Engineers License

1 Reply

Hi All-

Rookie investor here, trying to game plan while searching for my first deal! As a civil engineer with a concentration in transportation, I am trying to understand how others have used their Professional Engineers License to benefit their personal real estate ventures. I am familiar with obtaining permits (Driveways, Erosion Control, subdivision, etc.) related to larger developments. However, since I would imagine these items are not common on smaller fix & flips, I am trying to determine if there are areas on these smaller projects where you have benefited from your license.

I understand their are ethics involved here, as far as what certain individuals are qualified to do, but like I said just wanted to see if anyone is using this to their advantage on smaller projects.  

Anyway thank you in advance for our input!
