    I am listed with AppraiserUsa.com and have received several orders from that listing. :cool: I know its a good website. I've heard everyone say not to pay for any others and I have no intention of doing so.

    <_< Appraisal.com keeps sending me emails to upgrade from my free listing. I sent the following email back to them:

    :wacko:

    Not losing any :asleep: over it. I'm just curious and would like to know if anyone with a free listing has ever received an order (how many) from Appraisal.com.

    Just got this reply as I was posting:

    :eyecrazy: Silly me, I thought they were soliciting customers not just someone to front-load their investment portfolio.

    I have a gold membership at Appraisal.com. I signed up approximately three months ago and have NEVER received an order. I find it kind of odd since not only do I live in a large market area, but live in the same state the Appraisal.com is based. If 90% of the orders are going to gold members, they simply don’t have the work to go around.

    My opinion: Don’t waste your money.

    Feel free to mention my name and refer to this post in any future correspondence with them.

    Hello!

    They called me yesterday. I've got the free membership with only one order two years ago. I probably hadn't gotton more since then because I hadn't updated my E & O Insurance on the website (it just renewed the first of this year). He said another appraiser in my area had gotton 62 orders since then??? Anyways, I told him pretty much the same thing that you wrote to him and added that I didn't have $300+ to throw away right now!!! ;)

    I received about one order per year from them. I'm not sure I understand this correctly. They want you to PAY for orders upfront? If I remember correctly they simply took $40 some dollars from my fee.

    Anyway the last one I did for them they cancelled after I inspected the property and I never got a dime. It was over 60 miles round-trip. My best advice is to get YOUR money upfront from these low-life vultures.

    sound like a wireless phone company, service stinks so bad they need a contract to keep you paying

    Unfortunately, some pay services are worth the same thing!

    I get about 1 order every 2 or 3 months from appraisal.com and have the fastest turn around time in my market area. I was hoping for much more.
