BPO Auto Accept Software!!

By
Real Estate Agent with WEM PACIFIC Investments, Inc. 01055679

Things are quite changing in my area. I used to get and be able to accept orders from PCV Murcor, RRReview, Mainstreet, M2M but not no more. I guess somebody in my area is using an auto accept software to monopolize orders coming our way. I don't want to use it although sometimes I am getting tempted to do so.

I don't want to wake up one morning to have 10 or 20 orders to be submitted within 2 days. I was wondering what quality of BPO's these agents are submitting to the banks if they have to submit them in that time frame.

I am here not only for the money but to be able to help the banks by giving them honest and accurate BPO's. I know some agents are changing datas they get from MLS or tax records just to fit the BPO guidelines.

I once did 1 BPO for IAS and I have had a hard time justifying my comps. I have to asked the valuation manager to send me the pdf copy of comps the previous agent have used 3 months ago. Much to my surprise the previous guy change the year of construction so it will fit IAS guidelines. When I sent the tax records to the valuation manager, he was so pissed off they fired that BPO agent.

What do you guys think about the pros and cons of this auto accept software?

I can honestly say I've never heard of any software that does this.

Hi Bill,

You can search it in activerain, look for bpo automation and you will see several companies offering that service. If you can't find it you can google it or go to agentonline.net and I have provided the link: http://www.agentsonline.net/forums/ubbthreads.php

Thanks for the link Freddie.  I'm not sure I would want to use it, but the idea of it intrigues me.

Freddie, I do not think this is a good thing. I want to have the chance to accept or reject. So of the stuff is almost impossible to find comps for. Also some of the companies forms are pure nonsense, I wonder if/ know some of these people/ companies realize that there are no always comps. Here is my personnal take of the software, I know it does not filter, seek any negotiation of the fee's to be paid, and the list goes on. For the majority I work with companies that allow you to seek a higher fee or later date to get the report in. Many of the companies sometime give me 1st stab at assignment, and even give me a time period to either accept or reject. So no I am not comfortable with the auto acceptance software.

Bill & Paul,

I am not comfortable also with this auto accept software. Just like what you said Paul, I want to have also the chance to accept or reject an assignment. I guess some of the BPO agents are just in for the money.

I think a lot of the software is aimed at the new agents trying to get into the BPO/REO arena. Many of the new people can not get assignments, so perhaps the software gets them some work.

I'm not the least bit interested in using it either. I look up all orders first to make sure they aren't listed with an agent inside my office before accepting them.

We have an agent in this area that accepts everything she's offered without looking to see what it is. 3 days later the order is resent because either she decided it was too far out, didn't have time, or our office holds the listing.

Some things just make me shake my head.

Hi Lissa,

I am not interested in doing either. Just like you I check up all the orders first before I accept it. I don't want to accept one and later on tell them I cannot do it because of this or because it's too far out of my area.

Freddie I listened in on a webinar about Realty Pilot and they seem to have it going on.  The have the idx that will automatically fill in the information for your comps which saves time of the input.  You chose the comps and the idx load the information in for you.  so if you like doing bpos it might not be a bad way to go.  You just end up putting in the general information, photos and your repairs needed, adjustments and price opinion.

However, I would still not be able to make the final decision. Even though a property falls within my area of coverage there may be times I would not touch it with a ten foot pole.

Rosemary - Thanks for the info. Update me on your progress with it.

Paul - I do the same thing. Sometimes I have to reject an assignment due to safety reason.

I've known about it for years and I refuse to use it.  It is not customizable and you get BPOs from every area, interior, low fees, everything - you cannot pick and choose. The quality is suffering and your life is suffering.  Who needs this head ache?

Freddie,

I agree with your post 100%.  I find it very difficult to get any CMA or BPO orders accepted any more here in my state.  I used to get 5 a day.  Even with getting up at 3:00am to log in and refresh my screen to hopefully get just 2 orders is almost impossible anymore.  I believe in putting out quality reports for the banks as well.  But because some folks out there are manipulating the system and taking them all, i dont believe they are doing so.  Banks want a 2 day turn around and real pics of the subjects, how is someone going to do 20 a day?

I remember how nice it was to actually pick 3 out of 5 orders i actually wanted to due based on location and distance from my office.  By the time I even get and email alert on my Blackberry, the order is Gone!  I mean withing 2 seconds, while I'm logging in the site, no offers present.

Hard to make a buck at this anymore, and I'm not going to pay $400.00 or $49.95 month for the software to be like those that arnt being fair.  Hopefully loan servicing companies will continue to prevent this activity with constant upgrades to their systems.  One can hope.....

These people using auto accept programs are unfair and unethical. Most companies specifically state that you cannot use auto accept programs.  What goes around comes around.
