Here are two examples of pools that didn’t make the cut for an FHA loan until repairs were made. The repairs helped show the pool’s equipment was working properly and eliminated a safety issue too. Moral of the story? If you have a pool that is not filled or has green water, make sure the water is clear and pool equipment is working as it should before the appraiser gets out there.
I hope this was helpful. Let me know if you have any questions. I’ve written quite a few FHA appraisal articles in case you wish to learn more about what to expect during the appraisal process in the Sacramento area.
