Selling a Real Estate Note, Is your Real Estate Note Saleable?

by Jennie Pipkin

As a Premium real estate note buyer I am often asked by note sellers if their note is saleable. I cant stress enough to sellers how important it is to get the right information about your note and payment history to the potential note buyer. The potential buyer can only determine whether the note is what they want to buy if it meets the criteria they are looking for in a note purchase.

There are, however, a few basics that all or most note buyers look for. First,the note must be secured by legal means. Understand, the note iteslf is not legally binding to the payor unless it has been filed at the county court house.

A mortgage is then created that legally connects the real estate note to the property. This means that if the Payor (the person sending you payments on the note) ceases payments the note is still secured by the real estate. What that means is you could recieve payments for say, three years, but then the payments stop coming. You would still own the property and have no obligation to return payments made to you against the note.

Without this mortgage to secure the real estate note to the property the note would be worth- less.

Most note buyers are looking for secure places to invest their money for a long term return on their investment. They need to know everything they can about the note to decide if it will be a secure investment for them to make. Most note buyers want at least an 18% ROI when they purchase a note.

The mathematics required to determine the ROI on a note are complex and include consideration of the depreciation of money of a period of time. Quite frankly, a note loses value over the course of time, and this is a factor the buyer must calculate into his equasion.

The longer a note lasts the more its value drops because of this deprecation of money, called the "Time Value of Money". To get the maximum amount of cash for your real estate note you want to sell it as soon as possible after it is created.

look at the equity in your property. A higher equity can make your note more valuable. Other factors will effect the value also. It is really hard to know what a buyer might BUY on any given day, much less what they might PAY for it, even with fairly good looking facts and circumstances on the history of your note.

Many note deals may take a lot of "engineering" to finally come up with workable deals - deals that satisfy your needs as the seller... and meet the needs of the Buyer for security and yield return.

The note buying market offers a broad playing field. All kinds of cash flows might sell... and they might not! The only way to tell for sure is to list your note and all the facts, telling the buyer EXACTLY what it is you have for sale (leaving no important details out) then see what they are willing to offer you for your note.

5 MISTAKES People Make When Selling Structured Settlements for Cash Mistake 1: Agreeing to sell to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, some brokers or structured settlement/annuity sources will make a high offer just to get someone under contract. Then they will start making excuses and reduce the offer.

Cash Now for Your Business Note People are interested in selling business notes for several reasons.

Cash Now for Your Real Estate Contract The private mortgage industry is a relatively young business with roots that can be traced directly to the emergence of seller-backed, or owner, financing. Prior to the very high interest rates of the late 70s and 80s, seller-backed financing was not a common financing option. The only loan option for most real estate buyers was through a bank or savings and loan institution. But with interest rates topping out at 22 percent, financing for real estate was either unavailable or too unattractive for most buyers. Real estate sales plummeted.
