FAQs

How does payment work?

Our payments are generated automatically without need for invoicing, and are paid through our AutoPay system. When the report is marked complete in our system, AutoPay is triggered and the fee agreed upon (in our system and on the order form) is paid to the Appraiser assigned to that order number. Payments are made weekly, and reports are paid approximately 2 weeks after complete. If revisions are requested, payment will not be issued until the final revision is received.
