Ours is only 25 per month, per subscriber in the office. But that is after you pay about 1200 dollars in initation fees, dues, membership, stated fees, hidden fees, and any other fee that they can slap on your ***.
so the true monthly cost is about 125 bucks a month.
These costs depend on your location. To properly cover my area an appraiser needs access to three or four MLS systems plus one data service ( for square footage, age and sales history). If I paid full price for all of these services I couldn't afford to stay in business. I am lucky to have relationships with brokers and appraisers which allow me to share some services and save money.
That is a good way to do things. Diversify. I am the same way. I like to do Real Estate consulting, as well as Appraisal consulting. Expert witness classes are so valuble. There is a wide range of appraisal work.
