The Best

I agree that this is one of the best agreements that I have come across.
I will run it by my attorney to see what he has to say or add.

Bird Dog Contract

I like this contract agreement. I am going to start using it. I made some edits to suit my needs , and I find it very useful.


Varnie Jules

Good stuff

Will definitely use this contract thank you.


Getting To Know You!

Hi there! I read your message. I'm doing the same thing like you are; Assignment of Contracts. I'm just starting out in this field sense March. I know it's taking too long on closing a contract, but, I must familiarize myself on what the rules are. I haven't closed on a deal yet, but, maybe, by you giving me a few pointers, then I'll be on my way on closing out my first deal. Well, looking foward to hear from you. Take care! Eric.

I have a Question!

Hi there! In your opinion, what's the difference in Birdoging and Assignment of Contracts? Will be waiting for your response. Thank you.

A Slight Concern

The agreement at the lead of this post concerns me a little as the languaging relating to payment relates more to the sale of properties by the company rather than to the acquisition of properties. Some slight modifications would be helpful to this end. Otherwise it is an outstanding form (of course I cannot recommend that a person use any specific form because I am not a licensed attorney). I will, however, provide an additional form that could be used, of course, subject to review by your trusted attorney. I'll do so as an additional post.

One Suggestion

Thanks for your comment TC, glad to help. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to completely eliminate the words Bird Dog from the title. It will sound more professional without that term, and we are starting to steer away from using it. As a consultant you have the latitude to provide information to an individual or business that helps to further their interests. Sometimes the term Bird Dog comes across with negative connotations--this is simply a way to raise the bar professionally and steer clear of any perceived negatives.
Best wishes to all for your success.

Taking the Legal Road

It seems we are constantly reminding people in the program of the two biggest things that create problems for you from a legal or financial standpoint. Those two things are:
1) Using a backout clause in your offers that will legally allow you to terminate an agreement, if necessary, and get your Earnest Money Deposit back with the least amount of issues or delays.
2) Avoiding the illegal position of acting as a real estate agent without a license.
I'm not going to discuss the backout clause here, but I will discuss the 2nd item, and the two ways that this can be circumvented.
You are NOT acting as an agent without a license, if you:
A) Have a signed purchase or option contract on the property--you are acting as a principle, with an equitable ownership in the property, so make sure that you have a signed contract on any property that you plan to assign or resell on a double closing BEFORE you provide any specific information to any potential cash buyer.
B)Are acting in an employee-like relationship with a buyer on any properties that you are bird-dogging.
Since we are discussing bird-dogging here, your best position is to arrange a consultant type position with your cash buyers, where you are playing a finders role, supplying data on a property, and then exiting your involvement as soon as the buyer begins communicating and negotiating directly with the agent or seller. It is advised that you be able to show a pre-established consultant relationship with the buyer if asked, with regard to the properties you refer. It is a good idea to have your cash buyers sign a non-circumvent agreement, and make sure that it in some way references a consultant relationship that you are establishing. Then, with each list of properties you provide to the cash buyer, you use an agreement that refers to you as their consultant.
Real estate agents are highly protective of their domain, and it is to your advantage to make sure that you have a well-established paper trail in the event that one of them wants to complain to the Board of Realtors or other authority that you are doing something illegal. I love being well prepared, and basically making them look petty in these circumstances, they will back right down and be very compliant, and usually extremely helpful to you after they have embarrassed themselves.

Thank you all this has been informative and I like your birddog contracts! I'm just starting out and this will be very helpful to me!

I would love to bird dog

I would love to bird dog for anyone on this thread-I live in the southern most region of the united states and see a lot of properties with potential. I think this contract is appropriate though I think it would be possible to negotiate a different fee depending on properties--I would be happy to hear from you to discuss these things:

Thank you and God Bless,
