Anyone know of where I can find a good list of Bird dogs for the Southern Ca area? I am in need of help finding buyers for my wholesale REO found before it gets to the mls.
My best advice is to create your own. You can use free advertising to do this. Or, you may want to find some hungry Realtors that are fairly new.
Just run ads, bandit signs, word of mouth:
“I buy houses, I do short sales, I can stop your foreclosure”… etc…
you will get the calls … I promise!
Just keep the ads simple like matshingdo001 said. You will get responses.
The best way that we have found is to simply
place an ad on craigslist, looking for people
to locate properties…
Bandit signs work great as well…
Use CL which is the hottest thing going right now, Kijiji, and Backpages. Use small simple ads that say: “RE Investor seeking locators in this area. Finders fee paid”. Trust me you will get calls!! LOL
Or, if you’re really in a hurry to get this prop sold then I’d suggest something like:
“Motivated seller seeks buyer for fast closing on REO prop in (state area your prop is in)”
Definite replies will come your way with simple, straightforward ads.
Also, when building up your lists, whether it be bird dogs, and your buyer/seller lists, ALWAYS ask for principals only. One of the worse things you can do is get caught up in broker/daisy chains. I learned this the hard way when I first started out in the import/export business and it definitely applies to the RE business as well.
Hope this helps!
