Rising fees across the country has fueled the growth in appraiser income. That’s a good thing! Why should we be the only ‘workers’ to have their income potential held down by lenders who don’t want to pass on true costs of doing complicated appraisals to their bank clients – the actual mortgage loan consumer – while EVERYTHING else has increased?
Thankfully over the past two years that has changed, as most appraisers across the US are now better compensated than they have historically been for decades.
If you still think you have to compete on ‘lowest price’, you need to change your perception! Pay attention to the various fee surveys and set yours to be in-line with your local peers, the VA, and surveys. Talk to your appraiser buddies. Yes, actually make an effort to meet and talk with them! However don’t ‘collude’ to mandate appraisal fees, but at least be competitive.
You provide a valuable service and have many hours of training and experience to back that up. Ask for, and expect to be paid, a fair fee for the product you provide.
