Received a FAX request for a residential appraisal from a new mortgage broker. Seemed OK, was COD. Then after completion & forwarding via FedEx (Their account), got a message back saying they required THREE (3) originals. My standard is original + 3 copies. Advised them of such and that I only provide ONE (1) original with the exception of Narrative Commercial reports. Three guesses why they want extra orginals (First two don't count).

Color copies at Kinkos are $1.00 per page. I don't see how I can sell them for less, do you? B&W copies are .10 per page.....I don't mind eating that so much. :wink:

I've always furnished 3 originals on mortgages and 4 on divorces. All the forms are signed with black ink and a blue certification stamp. I'm waiting for a lender to ask me to put something on one of the blue-stamped forms that certifies "this is an original." Are color photo reprints originals? I do digital and they are all original. It's a great game to play. :roll:

All of which is the reason we send them EDI .. they can print off all the bloody copies they wish, and they're all original!

Also, that's why we now charge additional for originals/copies

:lol: :lol: Bill, you are going to get it from the other side!

But I am with you on EDI. Send them to the lenders and they have all of originals they need, just keep printing. But since I am a one man show, do not have a copy machine, I send 3 originals for those few occasions that I have to do paper reports. Any more and there is a charge of $25.

I EDI everything I can, but I'm way ahead of most of my clients. Originally they were telling me I had to be up to speed or get out of the way. Um-m-m h-m-m-m!

I have always provided three "originals". So did the appraiser I started out with.

That is why I love EDI so much.

Interesting thread. I supply one original and two copies. I charge $10 for each additional original on a residential report and $25 for each additional original on a commercial narrative. It takes time to print color copies and paste them up. Plus the ink jet is expensive to operate. Time is money.

By the way, since FAX and EDI are considered just as good as originals now days (facismile signatures are legal, as I understand it), why can't they just use copies?
