Talk to a mortgage banker before moving forward with this type of home. Make sure they do not layer on top of Fannie Mae's guidelines. Non traditional home guidelines state that the cost approach can be used instead of using the comparable sales approach I have financed a few of these earth homes and as long as there are other non traditional sales to use as comparables you should be fine. These dont necessarily need to be other berm, or earth homes but having one similar sale does help.
Getting an appraisal on an earth home can be a little tricky as it is not a traditional home style. The appraiser has to be able to find some sort of non traditional sales in the last year to compare to the property. As far as financing is concerned; Mortgage lenders who do not "layer" or add additional guidelines to Fannie Mae's underwriting criteria will more than likely have an easier time financing a non traditional property. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. Chris
Jennifer is correct. This has a lot to do with the price adjustments in Jones. I question if the values in Jones weren't inflated over the past few years and if they are correcting for that area. With short sales and foreclosures running rampant in our country, Jones may just be feeling the effect. I recently financed a home that was new construction in Jones (one of the five Jennifer referred too) and the values (by sales comparison) for new homes seemed in line with the area. What age is your home and how much do you feel the value has dropped?
