Wholesaling entity

Is an entity necessary for wholesaling?

no. but there are tax advantages to using certain entities. I think an entity, even a DBA, adds the appearance of professionalism.

Thanks for that.
I’m also concerned about protecting myself from the NY State Home Equity Theft prevention act. Seems like an LLC will at least help to some degree, plus give me some professionalism, and an entity in place should I wish to purchase rather than wholesale.
