Illinois Wholesaling - You need a Real Estate Broker's License
Real estate investing in Illinois is changing!! Effective immediately, you have to have a real estate broker's license to wholesale real estate in Illinois if you do more than 1 transaction in a 12 month period. On Friday, August 9, 2019, Gov. Pritzker signed the updated version of the Real Estate Licensing Act of 2000 which changed the definition of "Broker" to include those who wholesale (see Sect. 1-10(5)).
