Wholesaling / Bird Dog in Richmond, VA area

2 Replies

Hi Everyone,

What's the difference between wholesaling and being a bird dog? I was about to put my first home under contract today went and viewed the place. I took pictures and everything for potential Rehabbers, but the price we had previously agreed was a little steeper after looking at the property and the seller was aware. The seller would not let me view the property unless I put an offer. So long story short I was able to get the property price to $57,500 and ARV was $75,000 with a potential market price at $128,000 with the highest at $150,000. The seller got offended and called off the deal because I thought I was making things easier for her by sending the property information. I was at work and had to text but everything can get mislabeled through text (which I should have known). So basically I'm stuck knowing I have what I think is a great deal but don't have it under contract to give to a rehabber. What to do with the information?

Get it under contract but contingent on it passing an inspection
