Mike Ford. AGA Director of Operations and Chairman for the AGA National Peer Review Committee just completed a draft proposal for REASONABLE minimum fees nationally.We are interested in your opinion. Please complete the survey on the home page. Or you may also provide feedback to an Bellas on Janbellas@appraisersguild.See Draft Reasonable Fee proposal on http://mfford.com/html/c___r_fees.htmGeorge, it is my fervent hope that CaCAP will join with us in adopting this proposal (conceptually); and urge other organizations that you have inroads with, to do the same. Right now, & shortly with TRID the unofficial default fee for appraisers nationally is something less than the $495 that most AMCs accept from the banks. It's why we see so many $250 to $350 appraiser fees
