Many property owners have had calls from Curtis Roberts appraisers and been asked to appraise their property concerning the OSU project. I called the number given on my answering machine as 918-296-0700 and they asked when I would like to schedule an appraisal. I asked who had requested the appraisal and was told that it was Cinnabar. I KNEW IT WAS NOT ME!!!!
Perhaps I have misunderstood OSU in saying that it was up to property owners to call to arrange an appraisal with Cinnabar. This seems to be a new pressure tactic. Considering the fact that Dr. Schmidly and Gary Clark have said negotiations were between a willing seller and a willing buy, I find it disconcerting that Cinnabar is now contacting property owners to suggest that an appraisal appointment must be scheduled.
So, if you are NOT a “willing seller”, do NOT fall into this “trap”!
