So, I recently blogged about a client that tried to pressure me to change my analysis of market conditions in my appraisal to better suite his loan (i didn't do it). Well the newest developments are that the appraisal fee is now over due. I contacted the title company that was noted on the appraisal order to see what the deal was and when I would get paid. The title company reported the check had been mailed out weeks ago to ******* appraisal company (this was not my company). Well this broker went out and got another appraisal from another company that obviously did not check the declineing market box. The title company paid out to that appraiser on that invoice and I am left holding the bag. Why, because I did a great job and reported the actual market conditions. This is why good appraisers are pissed and why there are soooooooo many appraisers in the pocket of lenders, brokers and realtors. So again I say is there anyone out there that needs an accurate appraisal? If so please contact me because I could really use the business.
