Well, i contacted some real estate attorneys here in St.Louis to see if i will be dealing within the law and was told that this strategy is illegal here is Missouri, because i will be acting as a real estate broker and i would need a RE License. She asked if i was giving the Option Consideration fee to the seller and i said No, that what i get. Said i was selling the property, i told her im a principal in the deal since i have a contract with the seller. Said theres no benefit to the seller if i cant find a tenant buyer cause i can walk away. She hesitated alot during the convo..lol, said i got scammed and i should just get a RE License..LMAO..said she couldnt work with me on this as well and hung up. I have 3 more consultation with 3 other attorneys, cause i wanted 3 different opinions and wanna make sure i dont get into any legal troubles. Have been doing some maketing for this, and have been getting some replies, mostly from people saying the property has sold, some saying that it sounds interesting, but they rather do it on there own and some saying, there trying move and need the quick money all up front. That marketing campaign was just a small test for my market, but i know if i do it on bigger scale, i will eventually get a YES. Anybody have thoughts on this?
