As a FL Realtor I flip properties. I must disclose to all parties involved with non-representation forms and on agreements used that I am a Realtor buying for myself and I’m not giving them any advice. It’s not a problem. I started out in RE investing first and then got licensed later. I think there is a trade off between being licensed and not. You learn alot especially if you become a broker plus you have all the sales info at your fingertips; but sellers are leery of you until you let them know you’re interested in buying not listing their property. As long as you disclose you’ll be alright. I also found it was better to become a broker and work for myself than be a salesperson for another broker.
