We are selling a 100 year old house that has been painted every 5-7 years. One small area is peelingsmall back porch area has some peeling. The appraiser whom I understand also follows FHA guidelines wants the whole house which is otherwise in excellent condition, scraped and re-painted. He also is asking that the slate roof be repaired that was just inspected and several slates replaced. No leakage. Are these legitimate requirements? How would any older home sell if all had to be repainted?March 01 2011 - Alliance0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
