What Is A Real Estate “Bird Dog”?

People that first hear the term “bird dog” might be confused how the term can relate to real estate investment, but when you look at the traits a true “birding dog” (or hunting dog) has in comparison to a “bird dog” or real estate headhunter, it all begins to make sense. Both have a keen nose for finding and flushing out their target. Both must be patient and know when to move forward and when to wait based on what their senses are telling them. And, to be successful, both hunting dog and bird dog must bring home their target to be rewarded.

So what exactly is a real estate bird dog? A bird dog is a keen individual with an eye for distressed and underpriced properties that would interest a real estate investor. In return for these finds, the bird dog is paid once their lead results in a successful purchase. A bird dog might have an interest in real estate investment or just be in it for the thrill of the hunt. Either way, we love working with reliable bird dogs who are ready to be paid well for their leads.

How is bird dogging different from a real estate wholesaler?

You may be familiar with the term “retail wholesaler” but a real estate wholesaler is a whole other ball game! A wholesaler finds distressed properties with motivated sellers to buy and finds an investor to sell the property to before they buy the home from the seller. A bird dog prefers to skip the lengthy process of finding a buyer and negotiating contracts and sell their lead for a tidy investment to an investor (such as us!) who is willing to spend the time and energy to speak with the owners at length about their property and the terms of the sale, and then arrange the legal contracts to buy the property for their portfolio.

Even with the ability to escape the legal ins and outs of contracts and title companies, a bird dog’s job is still difficult! Bird dogging may need zero capital to get started, but this job demands rigorous research and constant networking to try and find those promising leads that can be passed on to investors for a fee. At Wholesale King, we appreciate all the bird dog’s hard work! That’s why we make your finding fee very competitive to the current market.
