troubleDo you negotiate 2nd's for a living, or do you have this knowledge through personal experience, or have friends/associates that have done it this way. Everything stated makes complete sense and the section pertaining to negotiation is dead on. Part of my job is negotiating very large $$$$$ Contracts.
LOL, no I don't negotiate 2nds for a living. Coming from a professional negotiator like yourself though, your approbation of the listed negotiation tips is meaningful. And, I do have negotiation experience in my own dealings, not only with my lenders, but in other real estate dealings.
