You need to find a hunter that does not have a dog to give you a job. I know duck season is coming up but I did not think things were so bad in Philadelphia that you would be willing to be a bird dog.

A knowledgeable realtor will be able to help you find good investment properties that are around 80,000.00.
However, what exactly is bird dogging? I have never heard this term before, relative to anything except hunting for real.

I think you should ask your investor friends - the ones you already have - how best to find these opportunities. Also - you should ask them, very specifically, how they plan to compensate you for pointing them to a deal.

I will start going when I get to Philadelphia. (Which will be in a month). 80k deals is what I would target. I would hope to have 15k in cash when I am ready. Right now have 6k

$80,000 deals or you have $80,000 to invest? (No, I'm not trying to get you into anything, not from here in Seattle!)

Have you been going to investor clubs, Chukwudi?

Well when I start I would be looking at Single family homes and duplexes. So deals 80k or less to start out. But from talking to a lot of investors, I have heard that bird dogging is one of the ways they got their foot in the door. What do you think?

Do you mind answering a couple of questions? How much money are you looking to invest, and where did you get the idea that birddogging was a good way to get your foot in the door?

Well I am new to investing and I want to do it to start so I can get my foot in the door and learn the ropes.
