Buying a house using a VA loan. I made it clear to my agent, listing agent, and my banker I wanted to be present.
my understanding is that the Inspector/appraiser are the same person for VA loans.
Inspector/appraiser did their inspection without me being present. Unhappy that I spent $450 and was not there.
I was planning to use the VA inspector/appraiser as my inspection and not have another inspector in. I have had a plumber/window people/insulation people go through the property for future work.
Anyone have experience?
The appraiser is different than the inspector. VA appraiser is just a regular appraiser who is trained to complete an appraisal that conforms to what the VA wants.
Inspector is separate. I don't know if one is required for you, but I suggest getting one.
They are separate and YOU can't be there for the appraisal! Your agent can, but not you! We have done 2 VA's!
