Has anyone received any BPO assignments that they want you to drive the comparables so you are more able to compare them and take original pictures of the listings and sales? Imortgage just sent me an order and they were willing to pay $40 whole dollars for the assignment. These BPO mills do not value our services that is for sure. On the default cost break down I've seen on some of my short sales I see they are adding anywhere from $150 for valuations, per valuation listed by dates, plus and additional charge of $300-500 for appraisals.
These servicing companies are really pushing the envelope. They are wanting everything an appraisal offers and not willing to pay for it.
