Seems like everyone hates AMC’s and scope creep.
Scope Creep!! I ordered a sub at a sub shop. I love tomatoes! So I asked for extra tomatoes. I was charged. I took my car in for inspection. I told the mechanic since my car was up in the air and the tires were off to rotate the tires. I was charged. BUT, the tires were off. The cook’s hand was in the tomatoes. WHAT’s up?
I was asked for two listings. I wanted to charge. I did a restricted report on an office building (sales comp approach only). The client called and wanted a cap rate, then an expense ratio. They refused to pay more. No other appraiser charges. I would love to work for free but my creditors hate it and my kids need to eat. Business is up, it’s time to limit scope creep. Remember this when a client asks for your work file.
Pat Turner, SRPA returned from the ARRO conference with a lot of good information. I am waiting on his report to post it on the VACAP website. Go to http://vacaponline.com. Seems like everyone hates AMC’s and scope creep. Pat is also teaching CE in northern virginia.
VCCAI has moved its meeting due to scheduling conflict from the Blue Mountain Brewery to the Wild Wolf Brewery about 2 miles down the road. This is another awesome place. The ladies will love the gardens. All can come, just register via the attached flyer below. Plan on attending.
VACAP elections will be coming up very soon. All positions are filled. Brian Woody and Don Sledd have formed a meeting group that will meet the first Tuesday of every other month in the Richmond Area. All are invited to attend. Roger Easterling has volunteered to help form a VACAP meeting this September in Woodbridge. I will keep you posted as we push that along.
Finally, John Hillard, an appraiser in Richmond died of a heart attack back in March. I just found out about this. I did not know John, but many of you did. I am sure he will be missed. My condolences.
