Reduced Need for Government Backed Mortgage Appraisals Proposed
For Government backed mortgage loans, Federal Regulators are proposing to decrease appraisal requirement for homes $400,000 or lower. The current threshhold is $250,000. That would mean that certain homes up to $400,000 might not require an appraisal. That would cover approximately 40% of homes sales.
Currently an appraisal costs around $600-$700. So if this new proposal passes, that would help reduce the costs to obtain a mortgage.
