Can I do a FHA appraisal without applying a FHA loan

Nope, a legit FHA appraisal can't be ordered without an FHA case number, which in turn requires a fully ratified (seller signed) purchase contract, or that you own the home.

You can find an FHA-approved appraiser and ask her to do it to FHA standards. But it will not be an appraisal that could actually be used for an FHA loan.

Not sure why you think an fha appraisal would be lower than any other appraisal?  Comps are comps....fha just has their appraiser Also do an inspection for fha lending standards....but it doesn’t affect value.
