What a useful and enlightening contribution.

Thanks Lee


OK. Try reading the Limiting Conditions and Certifications that are part of every appraisal on a Fannie Form. You will likely learn a thing or 2.
Better? ;>)

If the rooms are indeed illegal they may not be counted in the HELOC appraisal.

It sounded like the concern in the original post was the wrong comps being used to appraise the property to which I am saying a new appraisal will be done for the HELOC. The HELOC appraisal is the appraisal that needs to use 5 bedroom comps to get the 300k+ value. In my experience, the HELOC lender will not look at the original appraisal

@Lee Bell Teaching and unraveling is 99% of what these forums are all about. It’s mind blowing to me when folks fail to realize that. Enlighten us and spread some Christmas cheer instead of stuffing coal in our stockings.
