In the real estate investing world, you may encounter the term “bird dog.” So what is a bird dog and why would you want to get involved in a bird dog program, such as the one that will soon be launched by The Short Sale Gal Kristine Zelazo? Well, that’s precisely what we’ll explore in today’s article.

What is a Bird Dog in Sales?

The term “bird dog” is a reference to a hunting dog, which is used by bird hunters. The hunter shoots the bird out of the sky and the dog searches out and retrieves that bird for the hunter.

In sales, a “bird dog” is a quite different. The term refers to a real estate investor — or someone who is seeking to get started in the real estate investment field —  who works to locate distressed properties and other real estate that holds significant investment potential.

A majority of these properties fall into the category of a distressed property, referring to a short sale, a home that’s in foreclosure, or another property that is in poor condition and requires repairs or remodeling (referred to as a “fix and flip” in the industry, as the investor fixes the property and then flips it for a profit.)

A bird dog may be a real estate investor themselves or they may work with a wholesaler, a fix-and-flipper or a more experienced investor who handles the transactions once a suitable property is located. 

A bird dog’s role can be varied. It may involve performing research and locating new potential investment properties using the phone or the internet; in other cases, they may go out to properties in person to evaluate their potential. 

A real estate investor bird dog is typically paid commission on the finds that lead to a successful closing. 

Why Join a Bird Dog Program?

A bird dog program offers a number of benefits. The Short Sale Gal Kristine Zelazo is in the midst of launching a new program for aspiring real estate bird dogs.
