Default Are new appraisal orders slowing down? Or, is it just me

Just curious. I have seen a slow down over the last two weeks. Anyone else?

I'll be the first to admit that I have not been vigilant in seeking out new clients over the past couple of years. That is because I have had enough work. And, for the most part, any AMC work, and I mean any, just isn't worth pursuing. I have nothing good to say about any AMC that I have worked with - big or small.

Maybe all the AMCs in your area are all staffed up?

I really doubt it! AMCs suck and good appraisers can find other clients without any problem! We turn down several AMCs each week! Let them skim there profit from other appraisers. The better appraisers will drive the AMCs out of business at some point!

Election slowdown is not atypical.

September was the slowest month of the year for me. October it was off to the races. I'm as busy as a one legged man in an azz kicking contest.

Never had a slowdown last winter. Busy all spring but manageable. June and July was crazy, little slowdown in August and September. Now it is busier than the rest of the year although about 1/3 is commercial with some farms scattered in. Residential getting quoted at 10-14 days.

Average residential fees steady at $500, 2-4 at $700, 5-20 units at $2,500. Looking forward to an end of year surge from the cpa's needing end of year work.
