Do appraisers have to use comps within one mile?

Do comps have to be located within one mile of a property to be considered legitimate in the eyes of a lender? Does Fannie Mae really have a “one mile” standard? This is sometimes a point of confusion among real estate professionals, so it’s important to know the answer. As a Sacramento real estate appraiser, it’s vital to understand standards like this and of course use the best comps out there in my appraisal reports (whether inside or outside of a mile radius).
