The way some highly experienced agents and builders are doing me now, I would feel sorry for a rookie with no experience.

Talk about crazy stuff going on. It's happening and especially in new construction. Pressure is alive and well to push value. Many don't like me but they respect me.

I fear a child would fold. In fact I just saw an example where a highly decorated appraiser folded on one.

Actually I think he probably just signed off on it but it was new construction. Be careful, especially on new construction.

How would you know?

They hide it well on the phone if they don't respect me. Good point though. I don't ask if they respect me. Most are reasonable but there are some who are bad and when I get through with my assignment, they go away.

They are really not bad. We are just on opposite sides of the fence in some ways. They are legally biased. They are good at pressure. It helps them in sales.

I have many Realtor friends. They get gifts from happy buyers and sellers and letters of appreciation. No one ever thanks the appraiser. If they get the home they want it's what they expected of you and if the appraisal comes in low everyone hates you. I always say, No one like the appraiser and I don't expect them to. We are a necessary evil. Or are we?

(my bold) Yes we are Norapp ... and I appreciate the "necessary evil" part because - that's my job/career.
But i agree, we hardly get thanks, but that's not why I do this

That shouldn't even be a question considering all the mortgage fraud and all the players, but it is.

The difference is we really do represent the public. Not an individual or corporation.
