‘Twas the month before Christmas, when all through the town
not an appraiser was stirring, not anywhere around.

The files were all hung in their drawers with great care
in hopes that one day they may be retrieved from there.

I had just settled down for another quiet afternoon
with a good book I could finish fairly soon.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but an appraisal request, oh my, oh my, oh dear!!

I sprang to my computer to gather information
for soon I would no longer be on a mini vacation.

The borrower has been contacted and an appointment set
next on the agenda is… what comps will I get?



My brain has died here. I would love if someone could expand it further!!! Could be fun!!! This is a case of too much time on my hands -- wait... isn't that a Styx song??!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas season!!:new_xmas:

than the LO called and said,

The request was observed
and the numbers were read:
Two hundred and Fifty?
You must be Mad!

My earrings popped off
An idea was born!
I reached under my desk
And pulled out the air horn

My research of the market indicates a PUD
The loan officer said don't worry
We'll just put the fee on the HUD!!!

You'll get paid ... I promise you'll see....
Thinking to myself - if it closes oh golly gee.

I jump into the car and off I go
Clipboard in hand dashing through the snow.
The holiday shoppers walking about
The little old lady in the street yells - Hey watch out!
In order to miss her take make a wrong turn
The GPS chimes 'ding ding'.... "you're off route!"

Now that I'm late but not to worry
Soon I will be taking photos in the snow's flurry.

The subject's new improvements are pretty shabby to me
Some paint, some windows, not even a flea
The owner looks over and says now it's worth a million three!

The report is done in a snap
Now needing a drink, I have a night cap.
So I pour myself some ol Tennessee;
While enjoying the buzz it becomes evident to see
I won't be pulled into the flipping trap
Because the owner scheme sure is full of crap.

I get up the next morning
with no surprise to me
the MB has left a message
I'm full of glee
could they be calling with another job
or to let me know how well I've done
oh no, I did not hit their number and thats a bummer
but send back the fee and there is more work to come

So then what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but the towns biggest skippy, with a nice case of Beer.
"Things have been slow, could YOU use some help"
"Drink up all the brew, and I'll make numbers work for YOU!"

Complete to date - are we good or what
