Your best source of leads depends on who buys your products.

First and foremost, there is a huge difference between residential & commercial construction FROM A PROSPECTING STANDPOINT.

If you sell goods and services to residential builders and homeowners … Fantastic. We look forward to working with you.

If you sell goods and services to commercial builders, we are happy to provide commercial building permit reports but please know, building permit reports are NOT YOUR BEST SOURCE OF LEADS. Why? The bid process. Call us for more details.


While the average is nearly 3 per county, some counties have several cities that have code enforcement such as:

Wake County NC = 9 cities and towns
Brunswick County NC = 15 cities and towns

See for yourself: We disclose the # of offices per county on our free TREND REPORT.   

What makes us different?


Our researchers VISIT ALL OF THE CODE OFFICES in each county AS NEEDED. As of year-end 2015, we compiled data from 278 code offices in order to produce reports in 110 counties and the list is growing !!

Be cautious of services that require a 1 year contract, mandatory bundles of counties, and won’t tell you the details about how, when, and where they compile their reports.   It’s the most common complaint we hear from our new subscribers!!  They have been burned by an inferior service.  It’s an expensive lesson.

So, how are good leads free?   Leads that are the current, accurate, and detailed will make you money.  Marketing done correctly is NOT an expense because it is profitable!

What we do is not rocket science but it does require a keen eye for detail and a commitment to be comprehensive.
