So far over the past 6 months I have Zero with basic free membership. How about you?
Barry,

You are not listed at AppraiserUSA.com! Perhaps you were thinking of some other directory?

To add your listing:

To sign up with AppraiserUSA.com go to http://appraiserusa.com and click on "appraiser listings" at the left of the screen. Then pick a user name and password and click the "register" button. Then fill out the form completely with your information and when done, click the "modify" button at the bottom to save your information. Wait until you get the "thank you" page before proceeding to make sure your your listing is completed.

Listings are free and for licensed and state certified appraisers only. We do not allow trainee licenses, associate or registered licenses or their equivalent.

Hmmm, our company is listed. Its just that there's so many other appraisers in the same area I guess. I dont see myself forking over $300 and still not even be on the first 2 pages for the same area.

Since you did not mention your company name there is no way I can tell you what position you are in.

However if you do buy positions you would always be on the FIRST page. You can get a top 5 position for 1 county for as little as $60 per year ($5 per month) . This would put you in the 2nd through 5th position of the FIRST page.

Of course you may be in an area where the top 5 are sold out, I don't know.

I had a couple of calls yesterday. One worked, one didn't. It works when you get top placement. Or if you're not on top, one of the top positions would work.

Thanks Wayne.

More Than Enough

I get five to ten possible order requests a week from AppraisalUSA.com. I "Cherry Pick" the closest proximity to my home office in cookie cutter subs only that pay the highest fee. I do single family only, don't do condo's, 2055's or incomes. I end up with two to four Good orders a week.

Could take more if I wanted to drive over 25 miles one way or do condominiums. Don't need the aggravation in relation to the money. Any more would cut into my fishing or beach/pool and pool shooting prime time. This is Paridise...you know?

If you don't sign/pay for one of Wayne's available top spots...your a fool. None available in your county?...Move.

Wish I'd get more, but then again, I like to pick & choose my assignments & clients. I can't complain though, my top listing had paid for itself within the first six months and then some. So in a way, I guess you could say my listing was "free" too, the only difference is I'm getting more exposure (sometimes repeat business). Great investment, Thanks Wayne! :D

Hey my 100th post ... I'm a forumite, yeaeeaah!!!!

$60 per year to be in the top 5 is cheap. Since clients do not always identify were they got my info, I can't give you an accurate number of appraiserusa orders.

I do know that I get at least 2-3 confirmed appraiserusa orders a month. Well worth the money.

The way I see it is that $60 is a token of what I own for the benifit of having the resource of the forum for free. That I get work from it is all frosting on the cake!!

I advise all appraisers to do the following (or train the person who answers your phone to do it):

Keep a record of all new contacts! This is a must.

Have a "new contact pad" by each phone just for this. If a new contact calls on the phone, before you get done with them ask: "Where did you hear about us?" Write it down on the new contact pad right then.

With email you will most likely know where the contact heard about you. If it is not contained in their email then ask them on a folllowup email or phone call. Then add that to the total on the new contact pad.

Over a few month's time you will be able to tell what advertising is working for you and what is not.

You are appraisers, but you're also marketers if you're in business for yourself and you must make every ad dollar work!
