What skip tracing really is.
When you Google “skip tracing” here’s what comes up: “Skiptrace (also skip tracing, or debtor and fugitive recovery is the process of locating a person’s whereabouts. A skip tracer is someone who performs this task…The term “skip” (as a noun) refers to the person being searched for, and is derived from the idiomatic expression “to skip town”, meaning to depart (perhaps in a rush), leaving minimal clues behind to “trace” the “skip” to a new location.”
“Skip tracing tactics may be employed by a skip tracer, debt collector, process server, bail bondsman or bail agency enforcer (bounty hunters), repossession agent, private investigator, lawyer, police detective, journalist, stalker or by any person attempting to locate a subject whose contact information is not immediately known. Similar techniques have also been utilized by investigators to locate witnesses in criminal trials.”
You don’t need skip tracing.
You’re a real estate investor. You’re not a skip tracer. You’re not trying to find a nefarious character or someone on the lam. You’re not trying to find someone who owes you money, serve someone divorce papers, put someone in jail, or repossess a car. You don’t need skip tracing for real estate investing. You need people search, a service made for a business, not a bounty hunter.
