Steve Wolfe replied to Hugo W Meza's discussion Where would you spend your money to find more listings

Steve Wolfe replied to Wendell Funderburg's discussion Reasonable Fee
"Of course, the one thing that hasn't been accounted for is what area of the country we're all basing our frame of reference.
$50 for exteriors in Jacksonville Florida won't get that job done in DC, or NYC, or usually Miami.
There's a whole lot we've…"

Steve Wolfe replied to Douglas Mueller's discussion WHY DO WE EVEN DO BPOs ANYWAY?
"It reads good, but I haven't gotten one done in an hour ever.
If it's 15 minutes from my house, that's 30 minutes gone with 30 minutes left.
upload the photos, 35 minutes gone, 25 minutes left, locate the comps, 20 minutes.
55 minutes gone, 5…"

Steve Wolfe replied to NEAL DALESSIO's discussion any body else tired of getting requests to do assignments for $35?
"I'm with you, Patti!

If a company has several in a given out of town area I will combine drive time to give them a break; this 
will usually…"

"You're definitely "preaching to the choir" on this, Neal.
I delete those with impunity! 
I have taken the time to become licensed and that's all I'm worth? Or they want to offer
$65 for a 100 mile drive AND BPO?
Forget it, I'll stay home.
And if…"

Do you, at least, get usable CEUs for their training?"
