No. I just want to heard good and bad. I've been ripped off, and I've made out well. I think just about everyone else in this business has to some degree or another.
Really I'm looking for who may be good to look into, who may be better to be careful about or avoid all together.
Also doesn't hurt to know what you guy look for when looking into a new company and the like.
Well the answer is they all suck! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. We work for two good nationals and they still pull the same crap the rest of them do just not as often. The truth is this industry has been in decline for years and anyone that is looking to sign up with more companies is either not doing their research or they are not comprehending what they read.
Take Corelogic or Altisource for instance. Both used to be great companies to work for. Right now both are in decline, guys are getting screwed on jobs, bids are being cut, slow pay and no pay. These were great companies 5 years ago.
The reason for this is the guidelines being handed down by VA, FHA, HUD, Fannie, and Freddie. The nationals HAVE to play by the rules so the contractor gets screwed no matter what set of initials are on the check.
The answer here is simple go local and go private.
We have been doing alot of work for different investors and we are finding that is almost as bad as the nationals. They beat us up on price constantly. We can't get retail for anything. I am beginning to think investors are not a good source of revenue either.
