Does The VA & FHA require Home Inspections?

I have had many agents and sellers scared to accept a VA or FHA offer because they thought it would not pass the VA or FHA “Inspection”

This video is to explain to them that the VA and FHA do not require a home inspection.

The VA and FHA “inspection” is really just the appraisal which is done by a licensed appraiser.

Check out the video to learn more!


If anything is wrong with the house it is up to the appraiser to mention it to the lender in their report, and then all parties involved work to fix the issues.

As always, if the buyer would like to have their own inspection done on the property they can, but the lender will not require it.
