That depends on how difficult it is to sell your home. If there is enough qualified buyers then you may not want to pay the extra fees required by the lender that a veteran isn't allowed to pay. I've gotten two appraisals by VA appraisers in the last three years and both times the appraiser measured my home and was very critical. Each said that the builder and county had the wrong square footage and that my home was smaller. I've been in some of the other homes in my subdivision that were all built by the same builder and all of them seem to have the same floor plan and be about the same size. Perhaps each one would be found short by a VA appraiser but since my home is compared with them to get a value and none of the others have been measured by that appraiser, it looks like comparing apples to oranges.
