CITY's APPRAISERS ARE CLOSING DOWN!
Okay, this is just weird. With the city in the middle of an eminent domain lawsuit and with more property still remaining to be purchased along Oak Grove Road… The City’s Appraisers – Smith & Co Appraisers – are shutting their departmental doors and closing up operation. Every appraisal of property I’ve seen on the Oak Grove Road project has been performed by Smith & Co (well, except for the “flipper’s” property which was appraised by a local individual).
I just called Smith & Co and asked for their appraisal department. I believe I spoke to Connie Roe because she identified herself as Connie and as a certified appraiser. She said she could not perform any more local appraisals because as of Friday they are shutting down that department.
This is crazy timing. There are really only a few reasons a company would shut down before a task is completed.
Contact me if you have more information at 573.778.6500.
If you are a certified appraiser who has looked at some of the appraisals being done by the City’s Appraisers, please call and give me your input on the validity of the appraisals. We will never reveal a source if requested, complete anonymity.
