I'm not trying to boast by any means but i am curious how the company i helped start stacks up in comparsion to others of a "small company" we employ 5 with one certified 3 trainees and receptionist. We average 200 a month. that would put us at 50 a piece (receptionist helps out but no input so not counted) just curious to know if we are up there or average or what. Prefer Houston only but anyone is fine to answer.

You are kidding right ????? Trainees averaging 50 reports a month ????

Better yet, one supervisor mentoring three trainees at 50 per month each, while he himself is doing 50.


This should be another good one.....

ALLLLLLLLLLLrighty then.

I think that those kind of figures put you squarely at the top of the list.

I will leave it to the rest to determine what list that is.

This should be fun.

the first trainee is the office manager who has been here for 5 years and is about two weeks away from his test. he didnt really need the money as he is the true one who helped start the co with the owner/certified. the other trainee and myself are close to certification about 2 months. we have both been here for two years and are pretty proficent in what we do. like i said i wasnt trying to boast or anything i just wanted to know if that was an average number or not...didnt mean to get everyone jumpin out of their boots or anything

the certified reviews all doesnt input 50 so i guess my numbers are skewed now that i see your post TJ guess that means we do about 65. we are also located in an area where our drive time to appointments are about 20-30 minutes from the office. occasionally we go about 45. I work about 220 hours a month does that calm your nerves? like i said wasnt trying to boast, sorry

If you think our nerves are on edge, wait a couple hours and read what others will be saying :) We are two of the milder mannered people on the forum...

Lets see, 65 reports done in 220 hours... Comes to 3-1/2 hours per report. Sorry, even appraisers with 25+ years experience require more time than that, especially in this market.

sidenote: do you use templates or anything or import your data from MLS or anything like that????

I'm seeing a lot of deals that end up taking 6 - 8 hours to complete. Lately the market analysis alone can take an hour or hour and a half. :rof:

You said you averaged 65 reports while working 220 hours. That includes preliminary research, driving to the inspection, doing the subject inspection, driving all the comps, driving home, typing up the report. Yes, that takes longer than 3.5 hours (average) on each report. Besides all the other things this job entails.
