Bob,.....Unfortunate, for sure...."They want the value before you do the appraisal". - - What else is new ? I've got to ask, though, if you don't mind. Was this a client located within the borders of the state ?.....or were they out-of-state ?
If they are in THIS state.......then, what a wonderful example of the lack of impact of all that potent new legislation that was passed in 2007 ! ! So much for the anti-coercion and anti-influence bill (SB 85) NOT being taken seriously by the client side of market participants.
