Terry Horton Alleges Appraisal Discrimination Led to Undervaluation of North Avondale Property
According To The Property Owner, His Race Played A Role In The Undervaluation Of His Property By $100,000. The Initial Appraisal Was Conducted By Thaddaus Dawson Jr. From the Dawson Valuation Group, Inc.
Terry Horton is a proud North Avondale property owner who strives to provide affordable housing for low-income families with Section 8 vouchers. His tenants often express their satisfaction with the quality of their living conditions, making his efforts all the more worthwhile.
Recently, an opportunity arose for Horton to expand his efforts by purchasing another property. He planned to refinance his current North Avondale building and use the funds to invest in the additional property. Unfortunately, an appraiser undervalued his North Avondale building and refused to correct factual errors that contributed to the lower value. This setback forced Horton's plan off course, as interest rates had increased since then.
