"Why would you pay some company to get BPO's when there are plenty of BPO mills that you can go sign up with to get BPO's?
Keep your money in your pocket and run as fast as you can the other way."

I had an email this morning of an available BPO order from this company. I'm not sure who they were before. I looked them up on BuzzFile. Small company based out of Irving TX that does just under $160,000 annually and employs 2 people.

"I'm in a similar situation. There can be an order just around the corner or 80 miles away. Sometimes I will have these BPO companies calling me because they can't get any of the other local agents who will take the long distance orders. This is why…"

Had two emails from CC this morning. Both for Property Inspections. They were only paying $15 each. They made sure to indicate that "no comps" were needed to complete the inspection. But you still need to drive out to the property and take photos.…

Willy Olsen commented on Michael Sims's blog post Beware the BAD Business Practices of 24 Asset Management
"Scary to hear about some of these asset management companies. I'm with Carrington and they do offer select agents REO's and also recommend agents to sign up with AM's outside of Carrington. One of those that I am signed up with is 24AM.   "

"Just a trickle of BPO work these days. Never have gotten anything from Xome. And I'm leery about doing any orders for the companies that are still around. Most are the ones that have pages upon pages of complaints against them for non payment."
