The number of bpos in my area has increased dramatically in the past 3 months. When I originally started bpos I probably would have been estatic with all the orders coming my way. Even though I knew what the number of orders meant, I don't think really knew what the impact was going to be on my re business.....today the number of orders that fly my way, makes me wonder about what lies ahead. Is this the short sale market turned foreclosure; is there another shadow inventory that will change the landscape of our market again?

Interesting question would be is how many of you are much more selective in the bpos you accept. In terms of forms, fees and location. I now have my favorite companies who have continued to maintain higher fees and really don't want to jump for a company that has continued to lower their fees and have no regard for experience or the expertise need to get bpos done in a timely fashion.

There will always be newbies to take my place so it makes sense to me to do work for the companies that at least pay better than most!

It's been pretty much dead for most of 2016. However, I had a big drop of orders just last week and picked up another lump of orders just today.
There have always been an increase in orders in December but this year has been a lot less than previous years. I'm waiting to see what happens in the first quarter of 2017. If things don't pick up (and I know many of you say BPOs are dead for good etc.), then I might jump on the rental band wagon. My husband has been doing very well with rentals and there's more business coming in daily. Not my first choice but better than working at Walmart, right?

Bpo's are not dead for good. Markets shift and we are due for one.

I'm not meaning to say BPO's are dead for good, period. It's just been very slow and going through my files, volume has been steadily declining. I know it's going to pick up again eventually (can't wait! I love doing BPOs)

It has been slow lately but don't forget, the only reason this economy has appeared good is because interest rates have been held artificially low for way too long. They are going up now and will be for quite some time. You are about to see what this economy really is and this country has more debt than any country in the history of the world. Bpos are going to be very very profitable in the coming years.

Okay everyone, I have a beef. I am getting notifications RRReview and when I click on the accept link, the order has been accepted. Now, how can that be, when I am sitting in front of my computer and as soon as I see the email I click accept. Tell me how can I get a few BPO's accepted?

I work with RRReview, and I have the same issue intermittently when they send out orders in certain cities in my market. HOWEVER, I am one of the only agents in my market that do rural BPOs, so I get a lot of "Exclusives" from them as well. When you miss orders in the way that you're talking about, it means that you are getting are BLASTS rather than direct assignments, and other agents have simply accepted the orders before you had a chance.

As far as sitting in front of your computer... missing the order even though you clicked it right as it came in... I am currently dealing with this exact same problem with one of my A.M. clients that actually lists with me (which makes it a much bigger problem). Basically, from what I understand, agents and appraisers use robots and monitoring services to auto-accept orders with certain zip codes. I know in theory this is prohibited with many asset managers and valuation companies... but I am fairly confident it still happens (especially with companies that use Quandis -_-). I can say this... I have missed orders at 5:15 A.M., even with my immediate response, when I have been up working. I don't know what else could explain missing every single order from a certain client other than automated systems.
