DEAR BOB: I just want to ask if I need to get a state certificate or license to become a real estate investor? Where can I get the license? --Myrna A. DEAR MYRNA: You do not need a real estate license or certificate to be a real estate investor. Millions of real estate investors do not have any license or certificate. Unless you want to sell real estate full time to earn sales commissions working as an agent for property sellers and buyers, it will be a handicap for you to have a state real estate sales license. The reason is if you are a licensee, as a buyer or seller you might create a fiduciary duty to the other party to the sales or lease transaction. Purchase Bob Bruss reports online. However, I highly recommend you take all the real estate courses at your local community college so you can learn the fundamentals of real estate investing. The tuition cost is low but the value of the knowledge you will learn is very high. HOW CAN HEIRS SELL INHERITED PROPERTY? DEAR BOB:...
