Mental Magic: “You Should Probably List Your House with a Realtor Instead”

Honest questions worth answering:

  • Do you have to be a licensed Realtor or broker to wholesale real estate?
  • Do laws in one state apply to you—even if you live in some other state?
  • Is there ever a “right time” to sell a motivated seller they should list their property with a Realtor instead of going with a real estate investor like you?!
  • Why do they put Braille dots on drive-up ATM keypads?

Is Wholesaling Real Estate Illegal in Illinois?

Is wholesaling real estate illegal in Illinois now? Hmmmm…

Ever thought that doing a real estate deal—simply flipping a property—could ever be labeled a criminal activity?

“What?! What kind of melodramatic hooey is this? Balderdash! Fairy tales! Things that go ‘bump’ in the night!”

Or, is it?

What the what?!

Illinois recently passed a crazy, new law that has real estate investors nationwide in a frenzy trying to understand it. Tucked into this new, state law are some pesky, legal constraints for unlicensed people who routinely wholesale properties (buy and sell houses for quick cash) without a real estate license.

Essentially, it seems the clear aim is to bring this sordid activity squarely under the “only by licensed real estate agents” umbrella, and no longer the questionable domain of seedy real estate investors who nefariously aim to profit from a real estate transaction—for shame!

Zillow Buys Houses Now?! Here’s How We’re Buying Houses from Zillow…

Maybe you’ve heard of a little website called Zillow?

Yes, the real estate selling, buying and data giant that makes most Realtors kinda roll their eyes, most real estate investors pretty much overlook, and most appraisers cringe as homeowners increasingly insist on using their “Zestimate” value, no matter what their dang appraisal says!

Love ‘em or don’t, Zillow’s the 8008,000 pound real estate gorilla on the internet that just can’t be discounted anymore.

In their mission to swallow the whole real estate world, you may have also heard rumors that Zillow is now getting into the business of actually buying and selling houses. Well, it’s a fact, and it’ll be interesting to see how that goes.

Personally I’m not so sure how that could work out well, and apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. But that’s a whole ‘nother conversation really.
