GTX63 We get referrals by brokers all the time. They send us these snake oil companies working with no knowledge of their reputation or history. They think they are doing us a favor. They get a call looking for good contractors and then pass the information to us. It is almost always a loser.

Mike Litoris Recently did 3 Initial REO orders for AFAS because some Realtor begged us to. Clean outs, smoke and co2 alarms, GC, shrubs, initial sales clean, etc. Just got my 3rd BS cut invoice. Told them to shove it. What a joke of an operation.

It's my fault because I knew better but I was wanting to see if the Realtor gave us anything else but all he has is a connection to AFAS so it would just continue to be this crap.

Either way it doesn't matter a CE is total BS from the jump.

They pay for the CE

tony1225 A CE is only required on HUD properties. If the CE is for an AFAS property there is no charge to the vendor.

Craigslist Hack So a 35.00 trip charge is 25.20 after discount from service link then AFAS takes another 10.08 then you have to pay 10.00 for repair base leaving the contractor with $5.12 for his troubles?

I'm looking to get into the AFAS network this is too good to pass up!

Assurant pays for the CE on their

work orders. The bids are one thing, they want a CE on even basic orders.

madxtreme01 forget the cost estimator being a PITA, it's expensive, especially since you never know if your bids are going to be approved

Assurant made some very poor moves.

Their new pricing caused the larger guys that were subbing out a lot of volume to not be able to support that model and keep their subs.

Then they doubled down on stupid by requiring a cost estimator making it too much of a PITA for the smaller crews working direct, who could have worked for the lower pricing.


I will say this for AFAS, check was never late 21 days every time all the time. Even after I put myself on hold. I was even considering giving them a call, I have no issues with them that are deal breakers, and have had good luck getting good bids through. But, I believe a company from somewhere in New England has taken over the WF work, and they do the CE for you.
