Property and Valuation Analysis for FHA (7 Hrs.)

Because many real estate transactions are financed with FHA insured financing, it is crucial for real estate brokerage professionals to stay well informed with FHA protocol. Successful FHA-insured finance transactions depend on the brokerage professional's awareness of property qualification criteria and the test the property must withstand.

The FHA Handbook, "Valuation Analysis for Single Family One To Four Unit Dwellings," served as a compass for developing and reporting appraisals to be used in connection with FHA insured financing. Effective Sept. 14, 2015, most of the existing handbooks, mortgagee letters, and other references formally used by lenders, appraisers, and other real estate professionals will be superseded by a new and more comprehensive handbook, titled the "FHA Single Family Housing Policy Handbook 4000.1." The new publication will help to direct information searches regarding minimum property requirements to a single handbook. Regarding appraisal reporting and delivery for FHA, the "FHA Single Family Housing Appraisal Report and Data Delivery Guide" was created. The guide provides comprehensive protocol for completing an FHA appraisal report.

This course, FHA Property Analysis," commences with a study of FHA's Minimum Property Requirements and Minimum Property Standards, and proceeds to discuss specific property applications and appraisal-related functions. Numerous best practices and illustrations will be included.
