Barrington Appraisal Group / Low Ball Appraisal
If Christopher J. Smith, MRA shows up at your door to do an appraisal for a re-finance of your home, do not let him in and call the mortgage company and DEMAND another appraiser.
This clown came and did an "appraisal" for my home and low balled the amount to 30% below standard market. I paid for my own appraisal and low and behold it was worth more than this idiot stated.
He compared my home to homes 10 miles away, in different sub-divisions etc etc.
This ### is a lackey of the banks and if you are trying to save money by re-financing to a lower intrest then don't count on this guy to give you fair value for your home.
You have been warned.
