Becoming an National accredited real estate agent.

1 Reply

Hi Bernicha,

To become a real estate investor, you do not need a license.  You need to gain education through a place like Bigger Pockets so you learn what to how and how to do it.

To become a Real Estate Licensed Agent, you need to complete your state’s required education, background check, finger printing and examinations.  You then sign up with a Broker and they will provide additional education and tools.

To be an “accredited investor”, you need to earn more than $200k (depending on the state and the investment)  or $300k jointly for the past two years and expect to maintain that level of income in the future. You need to show that you have the experience and knowledge to invest in un-registered securities or investments.

Hope this answers your question.
