3 Replies

Okay group quick question as I am a huge action taker I found about 30 or 40 vacant houses driving for dollars. The issue now is the skip tracing these owners to make an offer. I have so many have any of you guys used JV agreement for someone else to help you skip trace and sort thru leads while you do the more important work i.e finding more vacant homes please help all suggestions welcome

Hey Cashmere, you can probably hire a freelancer on O-Desk to do the skip tracing if you can teach them. You can find freelancers for $4 to $5/hour. Once they have scrubbed through the data and given you the phone numbers/contact information, you can then call them. Any properties the freelancers can't find contact information, you can look into a skip tracing service (which I think charges about $24/lead). Just a thought. Good luck and I'm interested to see what others say.

I am working on a similar situation. Have you tried services like spokeo or intelius? They require a subscription but its fairly low priced and they will be helpful for more than one deal.

I also forgot. Some libraries provide the service called ReferenceUSA. It's free if your library has it. I have used a few times to find people and it has worked.
