To ensure that your home is safe, the USDA requires a licensed appraiser to appraise and inspect the home to ensure it meets HUD home requirements. If a home is in need of repairs, the borrower or seller can use their own funds or proceeds from the sale of the property to make the repairs needed to pass inspection.
