As the largest insurer of mortgages in the world, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is a major player in the United States’ real estate market and an equally important regulatory entity in the valuation profession. HUD’s Federal Housing Administration (FHA) program sets the standards for a large number of residential appraisals nationwide. In March 2015, HUD published the new Single Family Housing Policy Handbook, also known as Handbook 4000.1, with an effective date of September 14, 2015. This is the most comprehensive overhaul of FHA appraisal guidance since 1999. Designed to be the “go-to” handbook for appraisers and lenders, this publication consolidates FHA requirements into one single authoritative source, instead of having requirements scattered throughout several different handbooks and mortgagee letters. Knowledge of the new FHA Handbook will help ensure that the properties you appraise meet the government’s health, safety, and security standards. This course focuses on the new FHA Handbook 4000.1 with emphasis on revisions to FHA appraisal requirements and protocols. In addition, students will learn how to effectively stay up-to-date with FHA requirements.
