What is a Real Estate Bird Dog? AKA Property Locator
So what exactly is a Bird Dog / Property Locator? Bird Dogs, at least when used in the Real Estate lingo, are also known as Property Locators, Property Finders or Jobbers. They are the eyes and the ears of real estate investors that find properties for real estate investors to buy, properties they wouldn’t be likely to find on their own.
Bird Dogs go out and find undervalued properties for real estate investors! Bird Dogs do not purchase the properties themselves; however they search neighborhoods, communities, counties, cities, and so on, looking for properties for real estate investors to buy. With a little experience, many real estate Bird Dogs advance to becoming a Wholesaler, which is actually taking control of a property (getting it under contract) and then selling it to investors.
So how does a real estate Bird Dog benefit from doing all the searching but not having to fork out a lot of moola? Investors pay Property Locators in cash when the Bird Dog finds a property the investor likes. These properties can be almost anything: single family houses, multiplexes, duplexes, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, or land.
Investors typically pay Bird Dogs what is called a “Referral Fee” of around $1000 or more. My personal opinion is that Bird Dogs should be paid a lot more than a mere $1000 if the deal they find makes an investor a lot of money. It should be more in the realm of 3 of the net profit the investor realizes. (Note: you need to check the laws in your state because in some of them it is illegal to pay referral fees.)
If you get good at property locating you might want to advance to the Wholesaler stage of real estate investing your reward from a deal can much more lucrative because you are doing a lot more work. Wholesalers actually gain control of the property by having some type of written agreement with the seller of the property. They then sell the contract to other investors with a wholesaling fee attached to it.

Sometimes referred to as the ‘southern gem’, Dunedin is the South Island’s second biggest city, characterised by a unique Scottish feel and architecture imposed on it during the time of New Zealand’s colonisation. Surround by beaches, forests and dramatic scenery, Dunedin is noted for its youthful and charismatic population being attracted by the educational and tertiary facilities contained within. With a population of just over 125,000, the city is one of the best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere. Becoming a desired location for students, families and businesses alike, the demand for Dunedin real estate is increasing at above average rates.
According to the latest Quotable Value New Zealand figures, southern Dunedin real estate figures have surged, recording the highest percentage increase in the country. The southern region extends from Waverley to Green Island, including the suburbs of St Kilda and St Clair. The figures illustrate that the area has experienced an increase in home values by 8.7% with an average sale price of $264,000. Likewise, Dunedin overall, showed a 4.9% increase in property values with the average sale price rising to over $276,000.
The increasing prices are a direct result of increasing demand. As many of the main centres in New Zealand are experiencing continued growth in house prices and valuations, Dunedin is presenting itself to many as an attractive option. With the average house price in New Zealand just a little under $410,000, properties in Dunedin represent real value in the marketplace where many families are struggling to find suitable and affordable housing options. According to Glenda Whitehead from QV Valuations, some of the increase in market activity in Dunedin is due to a rise in purchases by existing homeowners, who realise the benefits of purchasing prime real estate at well below national averages.
There are many advantages to purchasing Dunedin real estate, apart from the scenic and natural beauty that the city is surrounded by. With the security of tenure, you will be able to enjoy the cycle of the real estate market, accessing capital gain as the property naturally appreciates. If, like most kiwi’s, you enjoy a little ‘do it yourself’ (DIY), then additional capital gains can be achieved through renovations. There is nothing like the sense of pride that comes with homeownership. The freedom and ability to personalise your property to suit your tastes and requirements has long been an aspiration of nearly all New Zealander’s. However, with the current price hikes in property prices, renting is fast becoming a reality for many who cannot afford the deposit or repayments on their first home. However, Dunedin is offering the consumer real value and choice. Why not consider a move to a new place, where the people are friendly, the amenities are first class and most of all, your dream property is within your reach.
