With that in mind, are you planning on doing those repairs BEFORE you close on the home? That is quite risky. There is no guarantee that you get a bank approval for the short sale, and even if you do, the bank can decide to foreclose rather than going through with the short sale. You may want to discuss this in more detail with your loan officer and real estate agent.
The underwriters may ask for further conditions if the loan officer and local underwriting didn't pick up on everything on the appraisal report, but that is not normally the case.
Again, speak with your Realtor if you are working with one and your Loan Officer. They know the specifics of your loan package and property in question and can be much more specific in answering your concerns.
Unfortunatly for me it is a short sale and the bank will not make the repairs. i would do the repairs myself, but if the inspector comes back and says there are more problems, then I am stuck.
Typically if there is an FHA appraisal, the list of repairs are made, there is a reinspection by the same appraiser and then everything moves forward. If there is some reason you are the initial buyer and there is a second appraisal ordered, the same process would apply, but I would hope your agent and loan officer would question and explain to you fully why that is the case.
Hope this helps.
