Water Heaters Double Strapped

We recently had a conventional appraiser call for a re-inspection because the water heater was not strapped down. The only problem is that there was no water heater; the property has a “tank-less” water heating system.

This story is not, however, about mindless appraisers. It is a reminder that both FHA and Conventional appraisers look to see if water heaters are strapped down. Homeowners and Realtors alike should make sure that water heaters are “double strapped” prior to every visit by an appraiser.
