All right, one more whine. Just got fired by a client (one-time only, thank God) because I couldn't make value. Client wanted me to be more agressive (20% more agressive). Bottom line is that it just wasn't worth it. Much rather refund part of a fee than do a fradulent appraisal. It's just not worth it on the long term. At least I can sleep at night. Of course, there are others who don't care and sleep just as well.

Oh, well. At least Monday Night Football is own while I spend another long night getting caught up.

Consider it a badge of honor. BTW, why refund any part of a fee :?:

I get fired by at least 1 "client" a week. Just got fired today by an out of state, never heard from before lender that sent the request on 10-10 and was upset that I had not seen property yet. :roll:

Just another day at the office :wink:

I never get fired.....I just quit! Oh, mr lender, did I mention this conversation is recorded for security purposes. In the event of non-payment, a copy of your appraisal request will be forwarded to the State Appraisal Board. Have a nice day!

I didn't know the State Appraisal Board had any control over Lenders.

This System of Lender control and abuse is the major problem facing the Appraisal Profession.

To: Mike Garrett,

You are lucky you live in a state where the appraisal board will help you collect from deadbeat client's. That will not happen in Texas, in fact, the Texas Savings and Loan Department, the agency that licenses mortgage brokers and loan 'officers', will not lift a finger to collect appraisal fees that have been collected by the 'lender' for the appraiser, and then absconded by the lender.
