depends on what you want to do in FLA I think based on many post here you cant market properties you don't own without a license.. so unclear what you want to do.
if you want to buy fix and flip no license is required.. its smart though.. you save fee's on both ends.
like anything real estate done correctly is not a litigious business.. and really depends on how much volume you do.
My wife is an active retail broker doing 10 to 20 million a year in sales.. and I have never seen here get sued for anything or even get a nasty saber rattling letter.. but she is a stickler on the laws and rules of the road..
Hi, I'm new to BP, and what a find!!! My wife and I are moving back to Tulsa, OK around the first of the year and will be plunging into the investment business there. We are both considering getting our real estate licenses mostly because neither of us are particularly thrilled with our current jobs, and feel that we might as well be totally immersed in the business on both ends. We will be using the equity from the sale of our current home to buy into our first investment properties, possibly a four or more plex and move into one of the apartments.
