This article focuses on issues related to mortgage loans. In a post-boom environment where increasingly sophisticated and virulent fraud is a rising tide that will affect everything in the water, only lenders that maintain a reputation for loan quality in the secondary market will survive. "Will it sell?" is no longer just a chief concern of secondary marketing officers and other executives. Portfolio marketability has become a lender mantra for 2005. Increasingly problematic is the need to decipher which indexes and tools are most effective at intercepting fraud.
