The Busy Appraiser 13 – May Day, May Day!

It has been a while since my last podcast, so I just thought I would check in and share a little information on a new project I am working on with another appraiser down here in Southern California.

We met over coffee a while back and really hit it off. I was completely blown away by his techniques on getting estate work and he brings in enough work to keep himself and his entire staff busy.

This guy is so busy he is working 16 hour days! Non-stop, around the clock appraisal work. He really had it down and has over 20 years experience running an appraisal business.

He once had the largest appraisal company in Southern California.

I have been doing the best ever and have found a good number of appraisal management companies to work with, but if I had 100% estate work and was flooded with it, I could see how it would take my business to a whole new level.

If you are interested in finding out more how you can take your business to the next level, listen to the podcast and stay tuned for more announcements.

ASA & NAIFA concerned about Good Faith Estimate (GFE)

This past February, the American Society of Appraisers and the National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers (NAIFA) contacted the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to explain the importance of itemizing the separate fees collected in the appraisal process for the prototype Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and settlement forms.

The CFPB continues to test different variations of the forms, the ASA and NAIFA sent another letter to reiterate the importance of separating the AMC fees from what is paid to the appraiser.
