Newsflash: VA appraisal ridiculously low, what’s my next step?

House from hell strikes again. Closing was in 6 days not so much anymore. The VA appraisal came back way late and at $109K (purchase price is $137K). I only know of 1 house in my zip code that has sold for so little (a foreclosure) including the houses that are completely gutted after being flooded during Harvey. Honestly I’m wondering if the guy ever even looked at the house.My realtor and lender are both new to the VA loan process. I know an appeal is possible, but is it possible to find out what comps the appraiser used?I was prepared to walk away if the appraisal came back low, but this pissed me off and now I’m just angry. Is it worth the fight?
