That's the hard part. Pay ranges from $150-250. And you can't sell yourself short. And what is messed up is escrow/title will most of the time not tell you what they pay. Theyll ask what you charge. So let's say they do pay $200 but you say $175, then they will pay you the $25 less. Messed up right? But if you are over $20, they will decline you. And you may be willing to take the $20 less but how exactly do you know how much they pay? I try to ask "How much do you guys pay?" and they will respond with "How much do you charge?" It's like why are you asking me if you already have a price in mind. They're just trying to get you to sell yourself short. How about you tell me what you guys pay and let me decide if i want to take it. Which is stupid because borrowers pay for the Notary Fee not escrow or title. I've been fortunate enough to "sell myself short" and I get back with a "I will get you more money." At this point, you just have to ask yourself what it is worth it for you. No less than 150? No less than 175? You gotta see what's worth for you. But it is a kick in the groin if you find out they were willing to pay more.
This happened to my friend once....he said he would do a signing for $150. When he gets docs, he sees on the settlement statement that says Notary Fee $225. HE MISSED OUT ON $75!!! So they just refund those $75 to the borrower. Messed up right?
