The #1 Biggest Mistake Real Estate Note Holders Make.

by Robert Pomerleau

The single most common mistake that a note holder makes when creating a note is they check their buyers Credit Report. It seems so simple, but it is worth repeating "Most people fail to check the credit report of their prospective buyers!!" Can you believe this? Just by doing this one simple step can save you a bunch of money now and in the future.

How so? First and foremost by checking your potential buyers credit score can help resolve your worries of your buyers ability to repay their future debt to you. Heck, I dont know of any bank that would not check the credit score of any one of their customers seeking a mortgage. So why shouldnt you?

The second benefit of checking your buyers credit score is what if you should ever decide to ever sell your real estate note, trust deed, or owner financed mortgage for all cash? By knowing your buyers credit score would not only benefit you now, but it would also make your real estate note more valuable in the future.

Heres why. The first thing a promissory note buyer/investor is going to require to sell your note is your payers credit score! Your buyers credit score is paramount to how much money you will ultimately receive for your real estate note. Of course the higher the credit score the less risky it is to a perspective promissory note buyer, thus making your note more valuable to them and ultimately you.

So, just what is an acceptable credit score concerning a real estate note? That is entirely up to you, but if it was my note I would not accept a score of less than a 550. The credit score counts for 40 percent of a total of 100 percent in rating your real estate notes value. So whether you are creating or selling your real estate note it pays to get your buyers credit score in more ways than one.

I have taken numerous real estate investing courses and as my love for real estate and the internet grew, I wanted to take it to the next level.

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. Once you are under contract with a funding source, it is very difficult to back out. Even if you are able to pull out, you will have to start the whole process over again losing valuable time. Cash Now for Your Business Note People are interested in selling business notes for several reasons. Usually, the prospective seller has decided that he would rather receive the lump sum value of the business, rather than monthly payments. Often that's because he wants to invest in a new business. Other times, the prospective seller has an incentive such as an expensive wedding bill, college tuition or a retirement trip. Factoring Invoices - How to Get Off The Cash Flow Merry-Go-Round All businesses want to be successful and to be successful you must have sufficient cash flow. Are you tired of your unpredictable cash flow cycle? Is the ritual of making incoming cash receipts stretch to cover short-term obligations frustrating your business and making you dizzy? 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.

Selling Business Notes for Quicker Cash In about 85 percent of all business sales, sellers accept a cash down payment and a promissory note to pay the balance in installments. The note is personally guaranteed by the buyer, and it is secured by the business and its assets in case the buyer defaults. Providing owner financing allows sellers to cater to a broader pool of potential buyers. Should You Sell Your Structured Settlement The courts have just awarded you a settlement in the amount of $1.3 million dollars for injuries you sustained while using the Widget Corporation's product. However, the terms of the settlement require that Widget pay you a small amount right now, with the remaining funds to be dispersed over the next 20 years. This "structured settlement" works fine for some people, but you have medical bills that need to be paid now. What can you do about it? Answer: you can sell your structured settlement and receive additional cash now. Structured Settlements 101 How Structured Settlements Work A structured settlement is a contract under which an insurance company undertakes to make periodic payments to an injured party as part of a bodily injury claim settlement or to a surviving family member to whom a large settlement has been awarded. These are just two examples of where a structured settlement might be used. Structured settlements have become popular because they offer substantial benefits to all parties involved in the settlement agreement. Structured Settlements - Should You Sell Yours In recent years, it has become more common for victims of accidental injury who accept a settlement from the at-fault party to accept a structured settlement instead of a lump-sum payment. With a structured settlement, the injured party receives payments over an agreed-upon length of time - five years, ten years, or even a lifetime, rather than receiving payment up front in a lump sum.
