Below is an article I received from WorkingRE.com on the subject of Customary & Reasonable Fees.

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011, 2:39 pm

David Feldman is vice president, government affairs at CoreLogic Valuations. He sits down with HousingWire to talk about the impending deadline on appraiser fees under new regulation.

The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning.

Those are some infamous words from Charlie Sheen. We all need to win from time to time.

On a more serious note, I have had probably the slowest week in the past 3 years last week. I was seriously wondering what was going down, but I think it has been a little slow across the country.

Luckily I picked up a couple estate appraisal orders over the weekend. Now is a great time to focus on getting internet orders for estate, date of death, divorce and bankruptcy.
