What are you doing watching TV? My gosh man, get out and inspect some properties, take a walk, play catch with your kid. But watch court TV. There are a lot more interesting things to do with one's life then that.
Ah Richard, I was waiting for that one. I've got a TV right here next to my desk. Yea, when I'm in the office I catch it all, Judge Judy, Joe Brown, some of that Texas Justice and who knows, if I'm feeling wild, maybe some Jerry Springer.
Turned out 3 reports and did 4 inspections yesterday and the TV was on all day. Can't take a walk or play catch while I'm hacking away on a computer.
I'd just bet I'm not the only one on here with a TV in the office.
Is it true that you do not have to be an Licensed or Certified appraiser to conduct appraisals for a FEE in the State of N.Y.
This guy says he was a R.e. broker and he was not licensed by the state of N.Y. The judge agreed that the license was not relevant and ordered the fee be paid. 4 properties for $1500.00. Originally this guy ask for $3,000 but the negotiated it down.
See Richard, you may be the only one without a TV in your office. Just think of what you're missing.
I was surprised when this guy said he was not certified. Turns out the defendant (client of the appraiser) tried to use the fact that the appraiser was not certified as an excuse not to pay. I was even more surprised when the Judge said it didn't matter. Apparently, in New York, you can do appraisals uncertified as long as you don't lead your client to believe you are certified.
What really happened was the guy's ex-wife cleaned out his bank account ($75,000) before the $1,500 fee check cleared the bank.
And Richard, the TV isn't the only thing I've got in here. How about a 5 disc CD changer, cassette tape deck, great sound system, the TV, 5 guitars, an amplifier, a dulcimer, a mandolin and a set of cordless headphones.
We usually listen to Interlochen public radio or CMU public radio on the stereo in the LR and have it loud enough to slightly carry into the office. This morning some new CD's are on including Bach's Mass in B Minor and Mahler's 9th.
Sometimes late in the day when it's just me and just me alone, I'll put on a little Bob Seager to pep things up.
But TV......Newton Minnow was right. A Vast American Wasteland.
