We know how it is:
The new year: a time of reflection — and for most folks with their own business, it’s a reflection on last year’s profits. It can sting to look over the months where work trickled in from a slow tap — or remember times when lender-based clients low-balled the fees as the industry settled in for the winter months.
Just in time for Christmas, lenders seem to become the least generous. With data sets to comply with, underwriters to please, and tight deadlines to meet — these days appraisers are doing more and more work for less turnover.
It might feel like you just have to bear it in order to keep getting jobs, even if it’s at a cheap rate. That’s just how the appraisal business works, right?
No way. This year, don't settle for low fees, absurd deadlines, or unpredictable income. This year, make a change for the better. A change that’s all about increased, stable cash flow.
