Should I wait 2 get a sellers lic where I invest or where I live

Hey BP, I'm new to REI. I don't know what area I will be investing in. Is it beneficial to get my sellers lic in the place I live or should I wait to get it in the place I will invest (if the state is near me)?

I would say get it in both locations. Depending on what states you’d get your license in. Some states don’t require you to take the class hours if your licensed in another state. You would only be required to pass their state exam. Definitely research the states so you know which one to get first.
