Looking for some advice on how to legally pay bird dogs.
I have seen that it’s ok to pay “per lead” up front ($2-$6 per lead or something like that) or to do some sort of option agreement where they assign their option contract to you and then collect their assignment fee at closing (not 100% sure how that works if someone can explain how to do that). Any other good ways to do it (i’m in TX by the way).
Also, when recruiting bird dogs, what should I ask of them? Pictures, addresses, homeowner contact info, etc?
Do I need to have an up front contract with them?
Trying to stay legal here, so any advice is appreciated!
