If the appraisal on a new home came in $11k lower than sale price, what benefit can I expect?I signed a contract to buy a new home in a nice new community for $751k. After the build was complete, the appraisal came in $11k cheaper at $740k.I spoke with the the builder and was presented with a stonewall. They are representing that they don't have to do anything because of the appraisal and that they don't think the appraisal is fair. Obviously, I want them to lower the price of the home, and it is a fair appraisal because the comps used came from the other new houses in the community.What should I expect to get out of this? AND, what can I do to best position myself for this final round of negotiations? - First time home buyer, thankful and grateful for any advice you all can provide!July 17 2012 - Fairfax00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
