So do you help out that appraiser you don't know who does the
AMC FHA for $159? Come'on they just need a few comps.
And you bid it for $425.

My charge for sharing such data, assuming they do not have access to my local MLS, is $15,150. $50 per comparable (three) for my time, and they must pay the $5,000 per comparable fine assessed by my MLS system for sharing data with non members.

Kinda makes that $159 fee look really .... well cheap doesnt it?

I'll help out and share with any appraiser who calls. An appraiser who is doing due diligence by calling appraisers who he believes are competent in an area is, by definition, is not going to be a skippy, and by helping one another and sharing our knowledge, I think it could go a long way towards consistency, better reports, and securing the public trust.

Jim,
So you would have given comps to that famous NC appraiser when
he was doing appraisals in FL?

If it is a local appraiser I know...no problem. If it is an appraiser from, say, Denver who comes down and takes assignments from local appraisers...Hell no!

Answer #11 ONLY. " I do not share specific subject or comparable data". Local and Regional Appraisers have access to exactly the same databases and Live data sources. Those who do not are welcome to refer the assignment - geocompetency IMO includes having direct access to the necessary data. Note: I refer Clients to known out of area professional, ethical, Appraisers ALL the time absent any "split". They reciprocate. What goes 'round comes 'round.

I view low AMC fees as nothing more than a function of supply and demand so I do not consider what my peer charges when I make the decision to share data. IMO AMCs gained a foothold in this industry because of the ignorance of sweatshop puppy-mills hell-bent on serving their own bottom lines, many of whom do not view this vocation as anything more than that - a vocation - and have no real concern if appraising ever becomes a profession.

IMO the supervisors/appraisal firm owners who caused this mess would have been just as happy installing sprinkler systems or striping cars for parts using illegal labor as producing appraisals, but they picked appraising because it was "cleaner" and the field was ripe to be expolited.

Add to that recklessly low barriers to entry which were designed to insure there would never be a shortgage of appraisers.

That said, my primary concern when I share data is (1) the accuracy of the data, (2) whether the appraiser is likely to ever acquire data I need (3) whether I can count on that appraiser to share with me and (4) whether the appraiser will respect the confidential nature of some of the data I provide.

It is not uncommon for me to get a call on a home that I have appraised in the past.

Most of the time, it's one of my competitor appraisers who are trying to find the ACTUAL GLA and ABOVE GRADE ROOM COUNT.

Dam$ realtors in this area routinely call a 28 X 40 ranch with finished basement a 2240 sqaure foot home.

That really pi$$es me off as the avatar indicates

I share non-confidential rental data with a group of appraisers I know and trust.
