EVALUATION SOLUTIONS FOR BPO'S - DO NOT DO THE BPO'S!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management
https://activerain.com/droplet/Ppf

evaluation solutions is NO GOODI have been doing BPO's (Broker Price Opinions) for years and have never had a problem getting paid.  Several months ago Back in July of 2012 of I was asked to do a BPO for Evaluation Solutions and never got paid.  I had a paper trail of the request, the receipt of the work etc.. When I couldn't get them to respond back to me I turned it over to my company who was able to actually reach someone.

This person said "We never asked her to do any such thing."  Really? REALLY? So we sent off all the proof and they have been dodging us ever since. I also just found out they have done it to others at my company as well.  Now a lot of this time lapse is my fault because I have been crazy busy.  Well now the gloves are off.

I did a search today and found out they have been doing it to others too - in one post they requested a BPO just weeks ago after apparently "shutting down" in 2010This needs to stop

Please let as many agents and people in the real estate field as well as homeowners know not to deal with this company.  I am on my own crusade down new avenues now to get my money back.  Wish me luck!!

BPOs don't pay much anyway for the work put it.  Shame a company would try to cheat you out of payment.

I had a bank recently ask me to do a BPO for $15. I laughed out loud. The home as 45 minutes away. Banks amaze me sometimes.

Debra, there are banks that will request a BPO in our state, but they are not a legal substitute for an appraisal and would never hold up in court. Sorry to hear you worked for nothng

Wow, that's terrible!!!  I'm glad you are following up and getting the word out about this shady company and I do hope you get your compensation.  We need to eliminate all these shady companies that give our field a bad name and that take advantage of the consumer and us Realtors as well.

George - Thank you thank you!  Very much appreciated!

Kim - I agree, there is nothing worse than someone who requests work to be done and then doesn't pay for it.

I appreciated the comments and you all taking the time to read!

I used to do BPO's for 2 major companies in the US and they have been reliable to pay usually but once in a while a bpo gets cancelled when I call and tell them something I found like an error on title. I have finally quit doing bops as it seems to be a lot of drama with these people and they cut the prices in half in th past year. $55 and $75 bops are not going for $25 and $30. I cannot drive, spend the gas, get contact information, take pictures and go home and spend 45 minutes+ for $30. And then sometimes they will reject it and send it back to change the info......AHHHHHH!

Kristin - I look at it this way- when they are close by me and I don't have an appointment otherwise scheduled and I can get it done quickly - it is MONEY IN MY POCKET.  But I totally know what you and everyone else is talking about.  When you find a good company or two it helps.

Debbie, so sorry to hear about your problems with evaluation solutions (lower case intentional). Can't think of a better way to draw attention to them and the way they operate.

Debra, thanks for letting us know how Evaluation Solutions has treated you in an unethical manner and how they have refused to pay you for services rendered. If I ever see an email from them I will sure delete it; not the company I care to do business with.
