Actually, this is a 3 part question.

1. Getting paid

2. Getting paid enough

3. Answering to yourself. "Why are you doing this?"

Making sure you know the laws in your state and that you are following them.  In Idaho you have to be a broker to do them or have a broker supervising and being part of it.  Not all agents are brokers in Idaho and many were doing BPO's illegally.  -Kasey

The hardest part is being a listing agent where the bank hires an agent with no clue how to do one to place a price on my REO listing. I complete 2-4 bpos a day and pride myself on my work. I get paid well and my advise is know how to do them, know the area, know what to adjust for what and do it right

I don't do them except in a relocation assignment and there is NOTHING hard about doing them as long as you know your market. Just like doing a CMA.
