Hearing on VA Home Loan Appraisers

National VFW - 4/10/2017

On Tuesday, the House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity held a hearing on ways to improve the VA’s Home Loan Appraisers Program for the 21st century. The VA home loan program is a widely touted benefit that has helped countless veterans since its inception. VA home appraisers work tirelessly to help safeguard our veterans in making sure the homes they purchase are valued at the correct market price. When asked how to improve the program, especially in isolated and rural areas, VA and independent home loan appraisers said to hire more home appraisers or contract out to local agents.
