You can give a better reply? provide a response using the comment section. After review, we will update the answers.

If your name is on the deed of the house and you are selling with your husband DBPR says you have to disclose. Is your license active or inactive? If you do disclose you have a license you won’t necessarily get any commission. You should sell the house for him and get commission for it if your license is active. Why give away money?
Based on your question though it doesn’t sound like you are actively with a broker.


You must be new in Real Estate if you do not know the answer. It is common to disclose you have an interest in the home. Also, you should ask your tax advisor if you should pay yourself a commission for the sale. In some cases, the cost of tax’s you pay on the commission you receive will be higher than the profit you make on the home.


Ask the Cali Dept of Real Estate. The website is listed below.
