Crest Appraisal Services is available for your FHA loans

Crest Appraisal Services is WA state certified and on the FHA Roster of approved residential appraisers. Crest Appraisal Services is certified and approved to do reports for FHA secured financial transactions. We're trained and understand the rules and procedures in FHA's guidance and policy documents.

Be sure to contact Crest Appraisal Services if you need an appraisal done for an FHA-secured loan.

If your home loan is FHA certified, that means that it has been guaranteed by the FHA, which is part of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). No part of the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is ensure that the loan is insured in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. Applicable to all buyers, FHA loan programs are made to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. FHA loan programs are particularly useful to those buyers with less accessible cash.
