I register with asset managers (see sample link below) who contract with the banks to provide valuation services. Then they subcontract it to Realtors and appraisers. They pay Realtors $45 to $125 for a BPO - Broker price opinion.
How could this be an appraisers dream opportunity? BPO's are so cheap because we are all hoping that we'll get an occasional REO listing out of the contact.

I suppose they will pay more for a full blown URAR, but not order very many of them due to the higher cost.

Hello Alan,

Phoenix is very backlogged, but call agents in other markets who are doing what you want to be doing. If you aren't cutting into their business and they aren't up to their heads in work they will probably help with information.

Every REO is different, and contacting them is also. I would look into finding out who some of the listing agents are for the REO and see if they have better contact information.

Call the REO managers at the bank. That list is a pretty tough one to pull together too.
