FHA says they should be no more than a Fannie or Freddie report.
If you live in a state with a lot of Licensed Appraisers the FHA fees should go up as Licensed Appraisers will no longer be allowed to do FHA appraisals. This takes effect 10/1/08. There are some states that have a significant amount of Licensed Appraisers. In Michigan it is reportedly over half of the appraisers.
Supply and demand dictates fees.
Where did you find that information???
