Tracking down owners - 411 and Skip Tracing? - Posted by LoRezSkyline

So here’s my question - in trying to locate the owners of some vacant properties, I’m wondering when you all consider it necessary to shell out the $$$ for a skip tracer’s services? I’m talking about situations where the last known address of the owner is the vacant house itself, directory assistance doesn’t have a listing for the individual and a net search turns up nothing.
I don’t really want to take the time to send a 1st class letter return service requested as I doubt that’ll turn up anything, and I’d rather move on these leads - as opposed to “quick-turning in slow motion” in the words of Legrand! But at the same time, I’m wondering if the wise folks on this board think that dishing out $24.95 a pop for a skip tracer’s services at this point in the game is worthwhile?
Speaking of which - that $24.95’s the going rate at www.findtheseller.com for one-off searches - if anyone has experience dealing with them or any other skip-tracing services familiar with the needs of RE investors, I’d appreciate your input on that as well!
Thanks in advance…
