THE ACREAGE, Fla. (AP) - The Federal Housing Administration has lifted a warning it imposed for appraisals in a Palm Beach County town stricken by a cluster of childhood cancer.
The warning advised appraisers that The Acreage might harm home values in the community. The county is investigating whether buyers were discriminated when they were denied loans.
A housing agency spokeswoman told The Palm Beach Post Wednesday they'll monitor appraisals in the area "to assure that they're in compliance."
The alert was removed on Sept. 15. Health officials told the families in the town that interviews conducted for their investigation don't show a cause for the area's elevated rates of childhood brain cancer.
The Acreage is about 20 miles from West Palm Beach.
