    Everything they have is public record. You don't have the resources to get "all homes in the USA" as an individual. There is no master single database....those websites are a composition of thousands of databases.

    • These companies, get a lot of info from public records, but some of the main places is from phone directories or even map sources for homes. The scrape whatever data they can with a specialized software. This is a skill in itself to use and use properly to get large amounts of data. Unless you are quite skilled with setting up software, bots and proxies, you are better off just purchasing a list off one of the database providers, it will be a lot quicker and less frustrating. if you need contact lists for businesses I recommend Core list USA.

    • Try a web search for: Property Tax Records to find public access state databases, like: https://www.taxpayerservicecenter.com/RP_Search.jsp?search_type=Assessment
