Real Estate Wholesaler Law

Real estate wholesaling is a process by which an investor (wholesaler) executes an Agreement of Sale with the owner of a property at a discounted price and then assigns or transfers that Agreement of Sale to another investor at a higher price. This practice is primarily used by real estate investors who are looking to profit from the sale of properties in Bucks County and the surrounding areas. It is important for real estate investors to be aware of the legal considerations involved in real estate wholesaling in Pennsylvania, including local regulations and laws.

An experienced Bucks County real estate attorney can provide investors with the guidance and support needed to navigate the legal complexities of real estate wholesaling. Isgate Law has years of experience representing real estate investors, and our attorney will help ensure that all legal issues related to the sale of property are handled in a timely and precise manner.

The short answer is, yes. Real estate wholesaling in Pennsylvania is legal as long as the investor complies with all applicable state laws. There are certain regulations that need to be adhered to, such as the disclosure of the property’s condition, the need to obtain a license if performing certain services, and various consumer protection issues.

We routinely represent real estate investors and wholesalers in Doylestown and the surrounding areas, and we can provide the guidance and expertise needed to ensure that investments are protected.

What Is Required to Wholesale Real Estate in Bucks County?

Wholesaling real estate in Pennsylvania requires the investor to abide by legal requirements and regulations. There is no license required by the state of Pennsylvania except in Philadelphia. If you intend to purchase residential properties for resale or aid others in doing so in Philadelphia, then it is imperative that you obtain a Philadelphia Residential Property Wholesaler License. This covers not only single-family dwellings but also mixed-use and multi-family buildings

You are not required to have this license if you:

  • Are a public official or employee acting in an official capacity.
  • Hold a valid PA-issued attorney, real estate agent/realtor license and act within its scope.
  • Plan on renting the property after purchase.
  • Invest in properties with the intention of increasing their resale value through improvements made by you.

Real estate wholesalers in Pennsylvania must also comply with a number of regulations and laws. This includes obtaining a real estate broker’s license if they intend to perform certain services, such as listing a property for sale. Additionally, they must abide by all consumer protection laws by providing the buyer with a complete disclosure of the property’s condition, as well as a full list of any liens or other encumbrances.
