Deed Collector is an old, reputable company that has ongoing openings for courthouse researchers to work for them as independent contractors. This might be ideal for you if you're looking for a way to earn on your own time, but you don't mind leaving the house.
Before I get into the review, you should know that their website looks VERY outdated. However, this company is not a scam and have been around for a long time.

Even though their application process looks fairly simple and straightforward, I'd recommend holding off on applying until you see they have a need in or near your area.
What is the Feedback on Deed Collector From Workers?
They have a lot of positive testimonials on their website, but I went to other sites to get the big picture on the feedback.
Unfortunately, Deed Collector doesn't appear to have a profile on Indeed or Glassdoor (my two favorite go-to sites for finding feedback on companies). However, they are legit and have been around for years.
