In order to reduce the need for on-site appraisers, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are easing the criteria needed for appraisal and employment verification requirements through May 17. The FHFA will also allow lenders the option of obtaining verification of employment via email, year-to-date pay stub, or bank statement showing a recent payroll deposit.
