It depends on the investor. I have never been a bird dog, but my contractor bird dogs for me once and a while.
What I do with him is once I sign the contract to purchase the property I pay him. Even if the deal were to fall through on me (which that has never happened)I feel he earned his money by finding me that deal.
I know many may disagree with that but I have known him for years and he has cut me alot of bargins on his work. We have a good business relationship.
