There can be a lot of different issues that come up during an FHA appraisal inspection. Some, however, seem to appear more frequently than others. These are issues Temecula homeowners should be aware of when taking part in an FHA refinance or when selling their home to an FHA buyer as any of these items could delay the closing of your transaction. Therefore, whenever possible it’s a good idea to prepare in advance by correcting any of these items prior to the appraiser performing an FHA inspection of the property.
The main goal when an FHA appraiser looks at a home is to look for the three S’s – safety, soundness, and security. Everything on the appraiser’s checklist is meant to ensure the property is safe, habitable and that the home will serve as proper security or collateral for an FHA loan.
