Mainstreet Valuations BPO Fees

Hello,  Can anyone tell me more about Mainstreet Valuations.  I signed up with them a few months ago, and recently received a couple of BPO orders.  The problem is that both orders were more than 25 miles from my office and they were only paying $20 per order.  Is this thier standard BPO fee?   I can't do BPO's for $20 that is an insult.  Needless to say I turned them down. 

Is anyone doing $20 dollar BPO's for Mainstreet?  I have done property condition reports for other companies for $20  but they don't require comps. and it takes about 5 minutes to complete the form. But to do an entire BPO for $20 dollars seems unreasonable.  Am I missing something?


Thanks for your help.

  • I just received a few orders.  Will I have to fight to get paid?  The orders are exterior and $45.00

  • I have done BPO's for them in the past and I wont again. They send out requests for $45 or less and you have to fight to get paid. Twice they have tried not to pay me for work that was completed.

  • way I don't get any BPO listings,

  • John, you may want to contact Mainstreet and asked to be removed from the site inspection offering.  I have done a few of these.  The sites were close by and the form took 5 - 7 minutes.  I was in the car for 15 - 20 minutes each.

    Pulling out for gas, I came out to about $35 bucks per hour.  That not bad in my book.  Make sure to know your distnaces before acceptance.

  • I agree with you, it is an insult.  I get request all the time asking to pay $20....(I don't accept them either) these BPO companies will keep doing it as long as the agents accept them.    Since they don't offer listings, I can't imagine why any agent would accept this?  I might think differently if listings came with it.
  • One needs to show some work and may get more later. Yes, the inspection does stay on the system a bit longer but not much longer.  you get a tankful of gas.


  • they want you to do driveby inspections for $20, not bpo's. Bpo's from main street pay $45 for exteriors & $75 for interiors. i do not know of any agents who are accepting the $20 jobs, but someone out there must be hungry! It could be worse for Titanium only offers you $8 for driveby inspections!
