Updates on FHA Jumbo - 2nd appraisal Requirements

New for 2009 with FHA Jumbo Loans are some changes to the second appraisal requirements for FHA Jumbo Loans. 

For FHA Jumbo loans the threshold for loans that require a second appraisal was those loans over $362,800 in 2008.   The new Threshold for 2009 is $417,000.   All FHA Loans $417,001 and above will require the second appraisal in 2009.    This holds true for FHA Jumbo Purchase Loans, FHA Jumbo Refinance Loans, and non-credit qualifying FHA Jumbo Streamline Refinance loans.  FHA Jumbo Streamline Refinance loans are available with NO appraisal required as long as we credit qualify the loan.

FHA Cash out Refinances over 85% LTV also require a second appraisal, regardless of Loan amount.
