When the Veteran buys your home
The VA appraiser is looking not only for the home to appraise for value, but also that the property meets the safety standards required by the VA. The veteran deserves a clean and safe home. The VA appraisal can be a concern to a seller. This extra level of scrutiny added to the myth that VA appraisals are tougher to appraise for value makes a seller nervous and concerned about their extra costs to sell.
