Dealer of what? If you spent $20k on repairs and sold it for $20k more than the purchase price, no matter how you qualify yourself, you didn’t make any profit. Thus, you shouldn’t really pay capital gain taxes on that, but only report all of that.
I vet for wholesaling. It is a good way to get started in RE without big capital or experience. I’d suggest you to read a book called “If You Can’t Wholesale After This: I’ve Got Nothing For You” of Todd Fleming and probably follow any articles here along with BiggerPockets. Good luck in your real estate ventures
Best way would be reaching out to landlords that own multiple properties and offer them help for small or no pay. Getting licensed wont give you any experience and you dont need that just to manage. You need a license only if you gonna list other people’s properties for rent.
The best tool to get cash buyers is a county’s property appraiser website where your deal is located. Look for transactions where houses sold at a lower price than the market and that’s your cash buyer. FB and IG are good, but you will come across some tire kickers that are just testing the water. You need the “cash buyer” with proven track of transactions of buying and/or selling in your area.
If your realtor is referring you as a contractor to his clients, RESPA really doesn’t apply to that kinda relationship. Because they are not referring you as someone who will help to sell/buy/list a real estate. You would be in violation, if you were referring your clients to them and getting paid referral fee for that.
Now the question is why you simply don’t find a good real estate agent in the city you are looking to invest. He will do all the search work according to your criteria, submit your offers and represent you at the closing. The best part, buyers dont pay realtor’s commission in Florida. That’s already worked in to the price and the seller’s listing agreement with his agent.
