What is Skip Tracing, and Why Do You Need It?

You’ve just found a scorching hot lead, and you’re frantically Googling the homeowner to find their contact information.

We’ve all been there! However, this method is inefficient. What you need is skip tracing!

Let’s back up…

If you’ve never heard the term before, “skip tracing” is the process of locating someone. Businesses often use it for locating people’s phone numbers and email addresses.

As a real estate entrepreneur, skip tracing is a crucial step in your marketing process. While you could wind up spending an hour (or more) locating contact information for just one person, skip tracing returns results for hundreds of properties in just minutes.

Now that you understand what skip tracing is and why it’s crucial for collecting contact information, let’s dive into why you should skip trace with PropStream:

We’re the Best Skip Tracing Service

We’re the best in the industry for skip tracing, period. Here's why:

Multi-Sourced Results

To start, our contact information is sourced from the top providers in the industry.

Fun fact: Our skip tracing covers 98% of the US adult population!

We understand how frustrating it can be to use your hard-earned money for results that don’t benefit you. Because of that, we source our information from a combination of trusted providers, increasing the odds that the information returned is accurate.

If one of your leads comes up empty and we’re unable to find contact information for them, you won’t pay a cent for that skip trace!

One of the Lowest Pricepoints in the Industry

While our results are impeccable, that doesn’t mean we’re going to charge you an arm and a leg to get them.

PropStream’s skip tracing services start at 12¢ per contact with a standard subscription, and we don’t require any minimums.

When you add List Automator (an add-on service that automates your lists and helps you stay up-to-date on leads that match your search criteria), skip tracing drops down even lower to 10¢ per contact!

Each skip trace returns up to four results per category (AKA, four phone numbers and four email addresses). Having multiple results significantly increases your chances of getting in touch with that lead.

To make the process even more convenient for you, we organize your results from most relevant to least.

Free DNC Scrubbing for Each Skip Trace

When you run a skip trace with most providers, you’re given contacts who are on the DNC (Do Not Call) list without any indication that they are. It then falls on you to run your lists through a third-party service to uncover which contacts are on the list.

We get it, that’s a hassle! Because of this, we flag contacts who are on the DNC list for free with each skip trace! From there, you can decide if contacting that individual is the best move for your business model. PropStream is the only skip tracing provider that offers this.

At PropStream, we want to set you up for success without emptying your pockets. With other providers, you’re left to pay for skip tracing along with an added fee to have your lists scrubbed if the provider even offers scrubbing at all.

This process takes additional time and money that you’d save by skip tracing with PropStream!
