    … and they offer ‘generous commission’… does that imply a ‘success fee’, or a variable scale of pay?… is it even ethical for appraisers to earn a ‘commission’??

    Wow, that’s 4-14 mins too much. I can name that value in 1 picture. Lol

    Complete and utter bullshit. Once again if Appraisers don’t rally, come together collectively or scream from the rooftops we are all going to be put out of business. ALL OF US.

    • Retired Appraiser Retired Appraiser says:

      I’ve sat out the appraisal business and waited 9 years to see that happen. I’ll give it another 10 though. One never knows how appraisers will react when it comes to the last two licensees.

    This is absolutely crazy !!!

    Wouldn’t touch the assignment with a ten foot pole, and I’ve been appraising  48 years.

      Neither would I !!! Celebrating my 50th year in real estate here in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1968-2018

  7. What’s even crazier is how contradictory this ad is. If there are no quotas and you take on as much work as you want, why do you have to value a property in 5-15 minutes? Will your screen go blank?

    Seems they are implying if you want to make $30 – $50 an hour you would need to complete 4 – 6 in an hour. That means they could be paying as little as $7.50 for a “value.”

    Why not just get monkeys to throw darts at a value chart?

      Don’t miss the coester briefing at the bottom of the article. A tedious but worthwhile read.

      Attention amc manager; Stipulation! Please provide…. Please answer…. Please justify…

      Shoe on the other foot now.

  10. Mike Ford Mike Ford says:

    1. Look at their crew on their website.
    2. In my state they would have to be licensed brokers to buy and sell that many properties.
    3. Georgia appraiser needs to look into that.
    4. So, they are asking licensed appraisers to basically do ‘comp checks’ with zero support for anything and they’ll then sell the flipped houses to individual buyers or brokers using the appraisal (hybrid folks)?
    5. It’s not clear value. It appears to be worse (if that is possible)

  11. Baggins Baggins says:

    At 2 minute, 31 second, a field services inspection companies actual screen view from their actual inspection applications. $5.25 for an ‘appraisal’ related inspection, it only takes 5 minutes…

    That is just one of many examples.
    Also I read extensive field inspector employee reviews. Good to know you can buy your way into it with an app, and get to work without ever needing to meet your employer in person or even a phone interview. The benefits of being a 1099 in a completely unlicensed unregulated industry, aka inspection services.

      Great links Baggs!

      I especially like the 200 to 300 per month OR 50 to 80 ‘stops’ a day. Making sure to mess with the gas meter is also really prudent. Trespassing optional. NOTE one of types of inspection IS for FNMA. I’m pretty sure MickyDs employees have more stringent requirements.

      Insurance or bonds? Licenses? NO PMI or MMI insurer should ever make decisions based on these things.

      • Baggins Baggins says:

        Yes, that would be fnma form #30.  For five dollars…

        We might have a problem with C ratings here… Just saying…

      • Nicholas Bochicchio on Facebook Nicholas Bochicchio on Facebook says:

        Lol. This has to be a joke. What moron would drive to 80 diff properties per day for $160 total. Prob waste $30 in gas, $10 in tolls and spend 8-10 hrs. Sounds like a pizza delivery driver to me.

        • Baggins Baggins says:

          As long as they are not held accountable, with no license requirements, they can just take a stab at the complex questions on FNMA form #30…

          Keywords; mortgage services inspection, field services inspection, etc. For a good time, take a look at the disgruntled employee rolls for any given inspection services provider. They are arguing over a ten dollar split. How low can you go.

    • Baggins Baggins says:

      The above post linked the wrong vid, there were two vids on that page, my bad.

      This is the one to look at 2 minute, 31 seconds.

      The inspector is cute. Looks just like an appraiser, less the clipboard and decades of relevant experience. Omg, what am I looking at here? Take photo, jiggle natural gas handle. Inspection complete!

      Well, I’ve always got something to fall back on. I’m sure my experience will trump the pizza delivery guy. And that’s where my five brothers reo work went? Sad.

    Trust me, you would make MORE money delivering pizzas !!!
