What is the difference between an appraisal for a conventional mortgage and an appraisal for a FHA ?I applied for a conventional mortgage and the appraisal came in too low. The loan officer said I could apply for a FHA mortgage but the appraisal would have to be redone. The appaiser has to come out and look at the property again. What would he look at for FHA that he didn't look at for a conventional mortgage?April 05 2009 - Brooklyn Park00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
