Mastering the FHA Inspection Journey

In life's unpredictable journey, homeowners often find themselves at a crossroads due to financial difficulties, probate processes, or the need to swiftly liquidate assets due to personal circumstances. At Sandy Buys Houses, we specialize in providing immediate, empathetic, and effective solutions for homeowners facing such dilemmas. Our mission is to transform your challenges into opportunities for financial stability, relief, and happiness.

A Closer Look at the FHA Inspection and Appraisal Criteria

Embarking on the path to secure an FHA loan involves a detailed inspection and appraisal process, designed to ensure that properties not only meet strict valuation standards but are also safe and secure for their occupants. This process encompasses a comprehensive seven-point inspection checklist that appraisers meticulously evaluate:

  1. Roofing: The roof must be in solid condition, capable of lasting another two to three years and free of significant moisture penetration. Homes with more than three layers of roofing material may require a new roof if damage is significant.

  2. Structure Quality: A property's structural integrity is paramount. It must be free from severe damage, including issues related to leakage, dampness, decay, or termite infestation, to ensure the safety of its occupants.

  3. Heating, Water, and Electric: The home must have an adequate heating system for all habitable rooms, a properly coded water heater, and safe electrical boxes without damaged or exposed wires to meet local building codes.

  4. Safety Hazards: Appraisers look for potential safety hazards, such as asbestos, contaminated soil, and other risks that could compromise the health and safety of the home's occupants.

  5. Location: The property's location is assessed for environmental noise, proximity to hazardous waste sites, and other factors that could affect its desirability and safety.

  6. Access: Easy access for pedestrians and vehicles, including emergency services, is a must. The property should be approachable under all weather conditions.

  7. Additional Observations: Beyond these key areas, appraisers also note other issues that could affect the property's eligibility for an FHA loan, including minor cosmetic defects, maintenance delays, and normal wear and tear, although these are not primary disqualifiers.
