Appraisal Waivers- Good Or Bad?

Appraisal waivers are a good thing, they mean we don't need to go through scheduling and waiting on the results of the appraisal.

It is a combination of loan to value, credit score, debt to income ratio and what their online comps say about your property. All that wrapped up in a nice bow is what give you an appraisal waiver.
