VA uses fee basis appraisers to appraise residential real estate and recommend value for loan purposes. A fee appraiser is a qualified person requested by the Secretary to render an estimate of the reasonable value of a property, or of a specified type of property, within a stated area for the purpose of justifying the extension of credit to an eligible Veteran (38 CFR 36.4301). The fee appraiser's estimate of value is reviewed by a VA staff appraiser or lender’s staff appraisal reviewer who uses the data to establish the VA reasonable value (38 U.S.C. 3710(b)(4), (5), (6) and 3731(f)(1)), which becomes the maximum loan guaranty amount an eligible Veteran can obtain.

Miscellaneous Actions
The reduction in burden hours was accomplished by reevaluating the number of respondents that was previously over-estimated in 2021 at 2,000 respondents per year to the current C&V and SAH combined 319 respondents per year. The C&V Business line contributes 239 respondents per year (based on the actual average respondents over 7 years) and the SAH Business line contributes 80 respondents per year (based on average 10 per 8 field offices per year). The reduction in respondents per year resulted in a decrease in burden hours from the previous 1,000 hours to the current combined C&V/SAH annual burden of 160 hours.
