Acme Appraisals, Inc. has a network of licensed broker that perform residential real estate appraisals around the country. They contract with banks to perform appraisals of pending mortgages, and have recently contracted with an NewCo Insurance company to appraise all properties NewCo are underwriting. A recent hurricane in Miami county has jacked up the price for their products for the next six weeks. Their rules are:
- Their list price for appraisals is $350, of which they pay the appraiser $325.
- Several clients have contracts for discounted pricing; this pricing may vary by contract.
- NewCo has discounted pricing of $275 per appraisal; this 'beats' any client pricing scenarios.
- Los Angeles and San Diego counties have a high demand, so they can charge more then their list price.
- The hurricane in Miami has created a backlog; FEMA has authorized charging $425. NewCo has agreed to a $400 fee in Miami.
