ICAP’s FHA Survey – The Results

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) is reporting that some feel that the recent changes to the FHA’s handbook on appraisals require appraisers to take on home inspection-type duties to ensure standards are met and that consumers can mistake the role of the appraisal for that of an inspection. In response ICAP scheduled a meeting with the NAR to discuss the issue.

To help prepare the Illinois Coalition of Appraisal Professionals (ICAP) for its meeting with the NAR, ICAP prepared a survey for FHA Appraisers.
