Good morning, if the subject property is a condo or PUD, then this site will help
However for most condos or PUD you will need the site name and that may differ from the HOA name, it's best to look up via county records which an agent can help you with that.
If the subject it a single family residence then a VA appraiser will go out to property after you have made an offer and been accepted. However typical things to look for are habitability, safety, proper heating and cooking area and a termite clearance. Hope that helps
Have a great day!

Sadly the market is dominated by short sales. However there is no need to stay away from those homes, it just requires that you work with an agent who has done them before. It may take a while to get approval from the lender, sometimes as long as 3 months, so patience is a virtue.
There are also regular sales and foreclosures available that do not take long to get through. I could set up a search for you that will keep you informed about homes on the market that meet your needs. If you would like for me to do that for you just contact me and it will start immediately. You can search on my website for homes as well.

Any detached home that's in good habitable condiiton, with no hazards, is a potential VA property, the seller just has to agree to accept an offer with a VA loan. It's really that simple, and VA loans aren't that difficult to navigate. In your price range, it may be more difficutlt to find an acceptable detached home. You're probably finding fixers, but even some homes that need VA-required repairs can be purchased with a VA loan if your agent knows how to work it into your offer. I just closed on a property with an FHA loan that started escrow needing FHA-required repairs with a bank that said they did no repairs. Sometimes it works.
Let me know if I can be of any help.
The very best thing you can do is hire a Realtor who has experience with short sales.
Often times in a short sale, the buyer is required to come in with additional cash to cover costs, especially if there is a second loan on the property. You will not often know the additional costs until you 1-3 months into the deal.
You want to know what is in front of you going into the deal.
We hope this helps you better understand the picture.
Best of luck!

I'd be more than happy to help you with that if you aren't already working with an agent.
There are easy ways to determine if VA will approve a property or not.
Let me know.
