Sorry people...James has left the building! This question is 7 years old! But what I love the most is when agents answer the SAME question, many months apart and don't even realize it! Wouldn't it be helpful to review the other answers before responding? At least then you'd know that YOU had provided one of them. ... more

A securitization audit is a term wildly used in today's market. I have seen it used in different cases. I am not sure how you are using the term. I have never seen it used describing how much investors made on a property. The majority of uses are scams designed to generate income for agencies providing worthless information. They have not been used successfully in court to prevent a foreclosure. Short sales result from a home being valued less than the outstanding note. Real estate is an investment. It rises and falls with market conditions. Prices or values of properties were driven up in the 2005 time frame by a variety of reasons, most of which do not make sense now. People who bought during that period are hurting right now. There are options available to them but they do need professional advice about those options. ... more

Peter Mohylsky answered:
A new home builder will typically not negotiate on the price they have set for their new construction. Changing that price affects all the homes he is building in that area. If you find a home in the early stages of construction you can negotiate slightly by getting some items included in the original price. Like wise, you might gain value with a fence, landscaping or "easy to do" changes in the construction. but typically never price. ... more
