"Sorry, Gil. I think your Negative Equity Carryover Model is insane! HOW LONG should borrowers be haunted by being upside down on a home bought 5-10 years ago? Forever?

All the appraisal mgmt companies do is increase the cost of appraisals by 40%, and add delay and error to the process. We get appraisers from upstate who wouldn't know a comp if it bit them in the a_ _. They have NO business apparising properties in markets with which they are unfamiliar..."    View Comment
