Appraisal Firewall is Not
What are 'Customary and Reasonable' Fees?
Appraisal Firewall is not an AMC! The technology lets your clients create panels of appraisers that they know, like and trust - appraisers like you. As one of the appraisers in your client's panel, you keep working with your same clients and can avoid AMCs. This will sustain your existing client relationships - but you need to talk to your clients about Appraisal Firewall and have them signup too.
Appraisal Firewall lets you set your fees. You can work directly with your clients on any fee negotiations, you can request fee increases as each job changes, and you can accept appraisal orders on the condition that your client increases the price or changes the due date. Appraisal Firewall is the only appraisal solution that truly supports appraiser independence.
Appraisal regulations like FHA and Dodd-Frank force your clients to make tough choices as to whether or not they can keep working with you and comply. Appraisal Firewall's ordering process keeps certain information private so that appraisers can get the job done quickly without any undue influence issues.
"My appraisal business is spread across many different platforms. Appraisal Firewall is one of the easiest systems to use. When my clients come to me with questions about appraisal regulations, I encourage them to use Appraisal Firewall so that I can work faster and keep my client relationships intact because Appraisal Firewall is not an AMC."
