N0 MORE MIDDLEMEN – non-amc directory and marketing guide

No More Middlemen

Have you noticed a significant decline of lender work over the past few months? Do you want to learn how to get more appraisal orders and finally get off the Appraisal Management Company roller coaster ride for good?

Like many appraisers I have seen a very significant decline in AMC orders over the past few months. I have been kicking myself in the butt for not getting started on my marketing to Attorneys, bail bond companies and credit unions prior to the interest rates going up.

Luckily I have a steady stream of attorney work that keeps me busy due to having a good contact management system in place and a steady client base of bail bond companies that refer their customers to me.

In this book I have detailed the steps that I take to create an inexpensive mailer to get more work from credit unions, attorneys and bail bond companies as well as the systems I use to continually get more referral work from all my past clients.

This is an incredible resource to those appraisers that are really looking to learn how do market your appraisal company and build up your client base so you don’t have to deal with seasonal and economic slow downs. This kind of work never goes away!

Possibly one of the most valuable aspects of this book is the spreadsheets that include:


2500+ Credit Unions
550+ Bail Bond Companies
300+ Direct Lenders
 

 

Chapters Include:

  • How To Use the Spreadsheets Included With This Book
  • Will Rising Interest Rates Affect Your Appraisal Business?
  • Getting Off The Appraisal Management Company Roller Coaster Ride for Good
  • How to Market to Attorneys, Bail Bond Companies, Direct Lenders and Credit Unions
  • Step-by-Step Instructions to Make a Postcard Mailer From Card Design to Mailing
  • How To Get Low Cost Mailing Lists Made Targeting Local Divorce and Bankruptcy Attorneys
  • Tested Methods on How To Get More Referral Work From Past and Existing Clients
  • How to get a FREE Local Listing in Google and Optimize it for Best Results

You are going to especially love the Bail Bond marketing information. These orders are amazing and I have been focusing a lot of my efforts to getting more of their referrals. Why?

When I am referred a customer, I quote 3 fees. I base my first fee off of complexity of the appraisal. Lets say it is a standard tract home in San Diego. I quote them $400 and will inspect within 2 working days and have the appraisal report back to them within 2 days. The second fee is to inspect within 24 hours and have back within 24 hours for $800, and finally a same day inspection and deliver of the appraisal is $1200.

Which one do you think the client wants when they are trying to get a loved one out of jail? 75% of the time it is the $1200 fee for a simple tract home appraisal.

But you do have to follow up to keep these clients, and I have listed all the techniques I use to stay in contact with these clients so the work doesn’t go away.

This resource is jammed packed with information and the spreadsheets are 100% sortable by state to make it easy to create your postcard and do your mailing as noted in Chapter 5: Step-by-Step Instructions to Make a Postcard Mailer From Card Design to Mailing

The next chapter lays out the steps I use to get a massive list of Attorneys in my market area by an inexpensive virtual assistant.

Take the time today to order my New Book & Directory – No More Middlemen – Full Fee & Appraisal Managment Free : 2014 Appraiser Marketing Guide and List of 3400+ Direct Lenders, Credit Unions and Bail Bond Companies and finally get off the crappy appraisal management company roller coaster ride for good!

The Appraisal Foundation Brings Standards and Guidance to Appraisal Software Programs

 The Appraisal Foundation partners with technology providers to create software programs for appraisers
that feature the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)

             
Washington DC – The Appraisal Foundation, the nation’s foremost authority on the valuation profession, announced today that USPAP guidance will be accessible in appraisal software programs in the near future.  ACI, Bradford Technologies and Centric Technology Solutions will release new programs that offer USPAP and accompanying guidance as an added resource for real property appraisers.

David S. Bunton, Foundation President said of the new initiative, “This announcement ushers in a new day for the Foundation and appraisal technology.  Appraisal professionals will now have USPAP and the Foundation’s related guidance at their fingertips for reference during every step of the process.  Digitizing USPAP and including it in the appraiser’s toolset is the best way to ensure compliance and ultimately build public trust in the work of appraisers.”

The Appraisal Foundation selected three companies for the initial launch, each committed to providing appraisers with the tools to perform quality appraisals through their respective software programs. These new software programs will assist in saving appraisers time and will equip them with the resources to help ensure compliance with USPAP, ultimately benefiting both lenders and consumers.

ACI will incorporate USPAP and related guidance into ACI Sky™, a new web-based appraisal platform. ACI Sky empowers the valuation professional to create full reports on the web with tools for sketching, data collection, review, MISMO® XML delivery, location and flood mapping. For Bradford Technologies, the partnership with the Foundation offers an opportunity to further the company’s focus on helping move the appraisal profession, and in particular residential appraisers, away from tedious form-filling and towards computer-aided appraising Redstone technology. Centric plans to fully integrate USPAP and related guidance into its dialogue-based solution for report creation and quality review by the end of 2015.  Centric’s end-to-end, web-based platform integrates the functionality and communication needs of appraisers, AMCs, and lenders.
