I don't have much money to start off with so I can't afford legal fees right now. Is it safe to start wholesaling without the counsel of an attorney right now? Please know that I do plan to find an attorney in the future.
The first thing you should do is research your States real estate licensing laws and may sure what ever you are planning on doing does not violate them.
Texas is a title co closing state not an attorney closing state .. so not sure why you would need an attorney... TExas in my experience is pretty wide open for all kinds of easy flipping type stuff .. you can tye property up with 100 dollar options then flip them.. and I think its perfectly kosher to do so... could not do that in many other states.. but as stated above first thing you do is check with our state governing RE agency for the definition of licensing.
