Are you planning on negotiating and signing a formal contract to purchase and then assigning them your contract for a fee? If so, you are just being a capitalist. Make sure you are selling them the contract, and NOT just getting a “fee” for your services. I think that is where the trouble would be, as it could be construed as “practicing real estate without a license”, which is against the law here in Florida.
I am an investor in Florida, and not an attorney, so if you want to do a lot of this, I would consult one familiar with NY statutes, as it could save you some money and headaches down the road.
