Im 17 years old. I look forward to start co-wholesaling, I have a significant amount of knowledge to haul in a pool of buyers ready to invest in or buy properties. The thing is, can i sign a co-wholesaling agreement if im only 17? Im not technically buying or selling any property under my name? Im simply setting up deals and walking . The wholesaler and i split the assignment fee 50/50 and when the deal closes he or she will send me a check of half the money made in the transaction. Is that legal? 

Thats a complicated question @Luigi Gutierrez. Technically if you are under 18 you can't legally enter into a contract. You could if you were emancipated. All contracts are different but in the case of RE contracts, if signed by a minor it is void. States have different laws. Check your specific state but its not likely. 

cow-hole-saling ... sounds messy ;-)

thanks for the help. so if i get my parents signature, i can start

@Luigi Gutierrez Even by starting now, you might find that you turn 18 before your "significant knowledge" will REALLY "haul in a pool of buyers ready to invest"!? (But if I guessed wrong, there is always that parent thing). 

Then, if your knowledge becomes indispensable to your co-wholesaler/s, there is nothing wrong with you negotiating for MORE than 50% of the profit-spread! Cheers...
