I am new to real estate investments, and have a plan to start by being a bird dog, then transition into short sales. I am very well connected with hard money lenders, and investors, but havent really taken that step into this realm
Like Keith said you never actually buy any properties you just pass on the leads. Another option to add to bird dogging houses, is bird dogging investors, I made about $20,000 last year bird dogging investors
I would suggest reading as much as you can in the forums here and maybe picking up a bird dogging course on ebay.
