If you hear this name run for the hill. I've had this company appraise my house once before i bought it and then again after i bought it and put $25,000 of work into it and the appraisal of the house only went up $3,000. Then back in 2001 i bought a house that appraised for $155,0000 i put $30,000 into it then in 2009 when I refinanced i had the house re-appraised and at that time it appraised for $184,800 (Neither of those 2 appraisals were done by Central) Now here in 2014 more improvements were made to the house and Central comes out to inspect it and they Appraise it for $159,500. when asked why it appraised that low he could give no answer as to why when the market was doing good between 09-14 i lost $30,000 in equity. I don't know about you but houses down go down in Value especially when they are kept up. So if you ever try to sell or buy a home and the bank tells you they have to use Central Appraisal Bureau Tell them to get someone else.
