Invelo’s powerful skip tracing engine locates the top three contacts for any property, as well as their mailing addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. This service also automatically:

  • Provides mailing addresses as deliverable or undeliverable.

  • Specifies if the property is vacant.

  • Labels Do Not Call contacts as DNC if it is found on the state or federal DNC registry. (states excluded are MA, MS, MO, OK, TN, LA)

  • Identifies phone numbers as a landline or mobile phone.

  • Scrubs contacts for litigators (someone with a higher lawsuit risk)

  • Identifies corporate-owned properties under LLCs.
    Note: Invelo’s corporate skip tracing engine provides you with a contact name from the LLC as well as a mailing address you can use to contact them for an additional 5 cents per corporate record.

You can skip trace a property address or specific contacts either individually or in bulk.


Skip trace a single record

When you run a skip trace for an individual record, you’ll receive the data instantly. You can skip trace an individual record one of two ways:

  • By skip tracing the property record

  • By skip tracing individual contacts within the record

Skip tracing property records

Select the checkbox next to a record and then click Skip Trace.

Note: Additionally, you can open any record and click Skip Trace inside the record. If the record has never been skip traced, you can click the purple banner.

In the Skip Trace modal, you can customize the skip trace:

  • If you don’t select any of the checkboxes, the skip trace will be completed only for the primary contact on that record (the contact with the gold star). If there is no primary contact, Invelo uses the property address to find the top three owners of the property and lists them in the order of importance. A gold star will be automatically placed next to the best identified record.

  • If you select the "Find and add more contacts" checkbox, Invelo will perform two skip traces. One for the primary contact and one based on the property address to find more contacts. If a contact already exists on the record but different contact information has been located, that new contact information will be added under the existing contact as an additional mailing address, phone number, or email. You will notice that the price per skip trace will increase to account for the additional contacts gathered by the skip trace. This will charge as an individual skip trace.

  • If you select “Change primary contact to the best match” the record will automatically identify and mark the best skip tracing result as the primary contact for that property record.

Skip tracing a property contact

You can skip trace an individual, trust or corporate contact on a record by clicking Skip Trace next to the contact. It will use the contact’s name and mailing address to skip trace the contact for additional mailing addresses, phone numbers, and emails. For contacts without a mailing address, the search will use the contact’s name and the property address.

Once an individual has been skip traced, their contact card will show skip traced as well as the date of the last skip trace.

Skip trace multiple records at once

To skip trace records in bulk, select the checkbox for two or more records in your prospects, leads, or deals database and click Skip Trace.

The skip trace will automatically run for the primary contact on each record. If a record has no contacts, the search will automatically find new contacts.

In the menu, you can customize the skip trace:

  • If you select the "Find and add more contacts" checkbox, you’ll skip trace the primary contact as well as the property address to find more contacts. This will result in a maximum of two skip traces per record.

  • If you select the “Change primary contact to the best match” checkbox, your property record will be automatically updated to show the best match from the skip trace as the primary contact.

  • If you select the "Include previously Skip Traced contacts" checkbox, you’ll skip trace the primary contact even if they were skip traced previously.

Once your skip tracing results are complete, you’ll receive a notification in your alerts.

Important: Your wallet balance must have a sufficient amount of funds before you can order skip tracing services.
