I want to start by saying I am not an appraiser. I am purchasing a home using my VA entitlement. We are at the point now where we are waiting on the appraisal and I have a couple of questions.

The home is a repossessed REO.

When the previous owner moved out, it looks like they tried to take everything with them, even if it was nailed down. Actually it is not that bad, but it is missing a few things and I'm just looking to see what the lender/VA is going to require prior to closing.

1. Carpet was removed from the living room leaving a bare floor (concrete slab).
2. 1 broken window (inside pane of a dual pane)
3. Convection oven removed from wall leaving wires there for connection.
4. Dishwasher removed.
5. Several "can lights" removed from ceiling leaving bare wires.
6. 2 bedroom doors removed.

That is about it. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

Why didn't you have the offer written subject to these items being taken care of? Unless you don't care, or the broker didn't know better. I am not trying to be harsh, but if these items mattered you should have asked for them in your offer.

They will likely require all repairs done prior to closing. House has to be free of all MPRs VA slang for any and all repairs. VA tend sto be the most conservative lending instrument out there...unless you want to do those things prior to closing you may want to seek other options.
