I was just wondering the percentage of appraisers that actually complete their appraisal reports in an entirely digital format for EDI transmission. I think it would be a good poll question. I use wintotal athena. Every report I complete could be e-mailed in PDF form with every addenda. However, I know several appraisers that don't have any desire to send their reports electronically. I still know appraisers that that paste their maps manually and put their reports together from piles with canned addenda. I know one appraiser who made over $150,000 last year and has never sent a report electronically and laughs at the thought of it. I would say half of the lenders I service wouldn't begin to know how to receive an e-mailed report and certainly don't want to learn. What do you forum contibutors think?
