HUD/FHA Appraisals    

          1st America RES Certified Appraiser Steve Maxwell is an approved HUD/FHA appraiser.  HUD's Mortgagee Letter 2005-48 outlines several changes and updates to the  appraiser's reporting protocol.   Qualifying for a FHA loan is easier than ever and while the inspection process continues to be more stringent than conventional type appraisal inspections, these protocol changes have made qualifying for a HUD/FHA insured loan very competitive to conventional type loans.  Current FHA Questions and Answers are available on the web site at Q&A (Adobe PDF Required).  Most recently, on June 14, 2006 Steve attended an FHA training seminar in Memphis, Tennessee.
