FAQs

We built this for our business a few years back — because we needed reliable/unfailing data. We are sniper type investors — so every deal we lock-into is super important.

Therefore, we cannot rely on “the numbers game, hit-n-miss, law of averages” data.
Our model doesn’t work unless we have the most inclusive and up to date data set available.

For Unlimited users…you can submit a bulk list in your dashboard and our system will calculate how many searches you need to purchase at 19 cents a record and prompt you for payment. After you confirm payment, the card that you have on file will be charged.

A basic search is when the data we provide brings back information about the homeowner only (this type of search doesn’t include the homeowners relatives).

We offer 2 plans: The Unlimited Plan & The Essentialist Plan.

The Essentialist Plan locks in the rate of $1.50 per search.

The Unlimited Plan locks locks in the rate of 19 cents a search for bulk lists (there is no additional cost for individual searches as they are unlimited).

Regardless of what plan you’re on,  a search costs 1 credit.

Bulk processing is when you send us a list with multiple leads on it for us to run for you at once. Your bulk list could range from 10 leads to 1,000’s of leads. Our powerful and accurate skip tracing software is able to run huge lists and we will get the results back to you within 48 hours. The cost per lead during bulk processing is currently 19 cents per record.

The dashboard is the term we use to refer to the user interface our clients login to in order to search for homeowner’s phone numbers. You can login to your dashboard anytime you want and do searches.

If you are on our new “Unlimited” plan, you can do unlimited individual searches in your dashboard (bulk lists can also be submitted at 19 cents per record). Also, when submitting a bulk list, you can submit an unlimited amount of searches for 19 cents per record.

Yes, we limit each Unlimited Account to one IP address. However, we understand that some of our clients work from a home location and a office location. Just let us know what your needs are and we will be happy to accommodate you if your request is within the scope of normal business operations.

Our cheapest cost per record via the Unlimited Plan is 19 cents a record. However, if you submit a bulk list of 500 leads or more, we will give you the rate of just 13 cents per record.

No, we do not store CC information in our databases (only our online merchant has it) so if you have someone on your team login to your account to do searches, you can be rest assured that your CC information is secure and kept private.

Yes, we rank phone numbers in order of probability.

We provide credit bureau grade data, so we use a much higher grade data than public records to provide information to investors about home owners.

No matter how high the grade of data is you’re using, there will inevitably be occasions when you can’t find a good number for a homeowner. In these instances, you can do searches on the homeowner’s relatives and reach out to their relatives about the property you’re trying to buy.

Many people who are in financially distressful situations frequently change their phone numbers to avoid creditors. Of course, sometimes people submit on file phone numbers of people they are merely associated with instead of their actual phone number. Sometimes, a person may even have submitted incorrect information. 

We cannot and do not offer legal advice re: the DNC list. However, we do have a phone number scrubbing feature that will scrub phone numbers against state, national, and litigation DNC lists. You are not required by us to scrub your phone numbers against DNC list, but this is an option you have in our system with both individual and bulk searches.

We do have a phone connectivity and caller ID scrub available in our system that you can use to scrub each of your phone numbers to tell you if that particular phone number is connected and who that phone number belongs to. This feature is fantastic for saving dial time!

Smart Credits are credits (consisting of DNC & Caller ID scrubs) that you can purchase to improve your skip tracing & cold calling endeavors. Each Smart Credit only costs 2 cents and you are charged one Smart Credit per each phone number. We do not require that you purchase Smart Credits, but we do highly recommend making this small investment in order to enhance your marketing.

We provide up to 10 phone numbers for each lead/search that are ranked in probability.

Yes, on one of our bulk outputs (the HORIZ), we provide a configuration of cell numbers only that are ranked in probability.

Yes, our data will tell you which phone numbers are landlines and which phone numbers are mobiles.

Yes, we do provide possible email addresses with each search you do.

While we don’t automatically give you each relative’s contact information, we do bring up the names of relatives & likely associates of the person you’re searching for to make it easy to search for information about a homeowner’s relatives (this really helps if the owner is deceased, if you need to find missing heirs, or if you weren’t able to get a good phone number for the owner you’re searching for). If you search for a homeowner’s relatives or likely associates, this will cost another search credit because it’s another search.

Yes, we do monitor accounts to deter bots & fraudulent use.
