Has anyone else been seeing the fees falling? Yesterday I was asked to do a property inspection for $15.00. My gas would be a gallon (approx $4) at 16mpg in town, a 30-40 minute round trip in the height of our seasonal traffic. Receiving $15 minus gas at $4.00= $11.00 for an hour of my time. I told the rep I don't do these less than $25.00. She put a "note" in my file.
Same day, another BPO company wanted me to do a full interior BPO for $45.00, thats my exterior fee, yikes. I really enjoyed doing these for pocket money, but I refuse to do them at these prices. I feel our expertise, years of experience and education make us worth a decent fee, I hope everyone else feels the same. These are BPOs that don't even lead to listings.
*My favorite is RELS/Corelogic, they pay 25.00 property inspection, 45.00 exterior, and 65.00 interior and pay the following week. Maybe we should list the good paying ones and concentrate on working for those companies.
P.S Broker Price Opinion.com never called me back so they must have found someone to take the $15.00 property inspection without any problem.
