During Appraisal Logging  
  HECM Appraisals  

Appraisal logging for Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) direct endorsement (DE) cases varies slightly from other types of cases. Here are some tips:

Using the Appraisal Logging Update page, enter HECM appraisals as soon as possible (information cannot be loaded using the FHA's Electronic Appraisal Delivery (EAD) portal) .
Enter HECM appraisals as soon as possible.
The Maximum Claim Amount is calculated using the Appraisal Logging Update page and then displayed on the Appraisal Logging Results page. The Maximum Claim Amount is needed to determine the upfront MIP due.
The HECM Financial Assessment page may be completed before or after the Appraisal Logging page; however, both must be completed before you can begin entering case information on the HECM Insurance Application page.
You are not required to enter Date of Contract or Contract Price.
