Just received a call from an appraisal company – someone’s about to be foreclosed, I suspect. Could I do a drive by property opinion in the North West corner of town, supply three comparable sales, three photographs of the subject property and aerial shots of the subject property and its comps? “Uh, sure, I guess”. “And can you supply them by tomorrow afternoon?” “It will mean rearranging my schedule a bit but sure, I can do that”. “And we pay $60 for this – is that alright?” End of conversation.
Maybe next year but I’m not working for minimum wage, yet. What surprises me is that the caller was surprised that I wasn’t interested in the job for that pay. There must be more hungry real estate agents out there than I thought.
