got our FHA appraisal back and all is good except a few water stains which we knew about due to poor Winterization (foreclosure property) However the seller (Fannie Mae) fixed these items and we had a full home inspection to confirm. however now FHA appraiser states

As always any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated.
