Do Real Estate Investors Need Real Estate Licenses?

Real estate investors do not currently need a real estate license and probably never will because they are not representing homeowners. There are, however, pros and cons to getting a license to sell real estate.

  • Pros
    • If you find a deal you don't want to buy, you can sell the home or refer the homeowner to another real estate agent and collect a fee.
    • Access to MLS
  • Cons
    • You have to disclose that you are an agent on investing contracts and marketing materials
    • You may lose some focus on real estate investing
