Buy Mortgage Notes

By: Steve Valentino

Before beginning to actually start buying mortgage notes, buyers need to consider several options and avenues. They first need to select the right mortgage note seller. Buying discounted notes and mortgages is a very high-return business.

What are the basics of the discounted notes? Many times, the sellers of houses and investment properties carry back some or all of their buyers' purchase price. Buyers in turn make monthly payments directly to the sellers. After a period of time, the seller may feel the need for cash in lieu of those monthly payments. The seller then gets this cash by selling the note to another investor. The selling amount here is usually less than the balance on the note owed by the buyers of the original noteholder's property. Thus, by buying a mortgage note, the buyer is guaranteed a profit over his investment.

Noteholders who wish to sell their notes offer some discount on the current price to the buyer. For example, if a person wants cash in return for the mortgage notes worth $21,500 the buyer pays a lesser amount, say $17,500. This reduced amount of the mortgage notes provides the buyer a profit of $4,000.

Usually, mortgage buyers are experts in handling mortgage notes. These agents buy mortgage notes and other things, like structured settlements and annuity payments. They also purchase real estate notes. Although mortgage notes are high-return investments, it is advisable that buyers seek the help of the agents while buying notes. These agents are willing to help buyers buy good notes at a cost-effective price in return for a small commission. Buyers can buy any type of mortgage notes, like commercial notes (single or in portfolios), real estate notes (single or in portfolios), and annuity or business notes. Buying mortgage notes is difficult. And the real success depends on locating the right agent.
