An FHA inspection checklist is used by HUD-approved property appraisers to assess the market value of a home and inspect its livability. An FHA home inspection is required to receive an FHA loan. An FHA appraisal checklist captures the following information:

Market value information

  • Visual inspection of property with photos
  • Comparable sales and relevant photos
  • Location and street-map data

Health and safety information

  • Environmental hazards and health risks
  • Structural integrity of the home
  • Electrical installation and utilities
  • Lead-based paint and other chemical hazards

FHA appraisals require significant photo evidence along with detailed notes of the property. A full report is then typically provided to the lender in order to satisfy FHA loan requirements before a buyer can purchase the home.

iAuditor is the world’s #1 mobile inspection app and can be used to perform paperless FHA appraisals. Take unlimited photos of the property, capture detailed notes and generate comprehensive reports all on your mobile device and without leaving the property. No programming skills needed, all checklists are fully customizable.

To save you time, we have created two comprehensive digital FHA appraisal checklists you can download and use immediately on your mobile device. The first checklist is used to assess the minimum HUD health and safety standards and the second is to estimate the market value of the property.

Two FHA Appraisal Checklists

1. FHA Appraisal Checklist - Health & Safety

Use this comprehensive FHA Appraisal Checklist to assess the livability of the property. Begin the inspection by taking pictures of the front, sides, and back of the house. Then proceed and check the possible hazards, soil contamination, drainage, water supply, insects, road access, soundness of the structure, roof, mechanical systems, lead-based paint, and other issues. Check also the standards for condominiums if applicable. Complete the inspection with the overall comment and assessment of the property’s health and safety. With iAuditor, photos and notes are automatically associated per line item.

2. FHA Appraisal Checklist - Market Value

Use this to help estimate the property's market value. Take photos of the property and record as many comparable property transactions as needed. You can use the map to record the address of each property. Complete the assessment with the valuation notes and the appraiser's signature.
