Why Are Mortgage Notes Discounted Anyway?

by Frederick B Webb Jr.

When real estate note brokers purchase partially paid notes, they pay the note holder a discounted price after factoring in the time value of money, the payer history, and property condition.

If  there is still a significant period of time left for the payer to make payments, the future payments are not worth the same amount in current dollars.

Calculations are made to equate all the payments into current value, which is how the discount is determined.

After purchasing notes at a discounted price, note brokers try to restructure the loan and increase its value.

Increasing the value of the loan requires the payer to refinance or increase payments, which requires a new contract.

Factoring the same concept of time value of money, we can understand how increasing payments now creates more value. The note can then be sold for a higher price.

Discounts must be taken from the loan amount due to inflation and the time value of money.

There may still be years left on the loan repayment, but the payments far in the future are not worth the same amount in dollars today.

Calculations are made using special formulas to equate the future payment amounts into todays prices, making todays price discounted significantly.

On the other side of the coin, notes that are well seasoned can fetch near remaining balance face value.

***Additional Major Reason Notes Are Discounted***

Although I am a broker myself, I put this site here because I want to bring you a clear understanding (from an insiders perspective) of the nuts and bolts mechanics of how the secondary market mortgage note industry works.

A major reason many people are turned off from selling their real estate notes is because of the discount factor......

but what you probably dont understand is that when you use a broker, like myself or any other broker anywhere, you pay additional fees that further drive down the amount of money you walk away from the table with.

Significantly.

Let me give you an example:

You have a $50,000 note you need to sell. Although you could sell only a few payments or the whole note, for this example, lets say you wish to sell the whole note.

You do a search on the internet and find a long list of brokers hawking phrases at you like, We can get you top dollar for your note..." and the like.

So you choose one and give them basic information about your note so that they can give you a quote on what you could expect to receive for your note.

So, the broker calls you back after speaking with an "actual investor" about your note. The investor has told the broker that hell pay, say $41,000 for your note.

Your broker says to you, "We can pay you $37,500 for your note.

He explains the whole reason notes are discounted but never mentions that other $3,500 discount you had to take because of his broker fee.

So, without ever discussing fees, you just paid $3,500 to have a guy make a phone call on your behalf to an "actual note buyer/investor.

***A Smarter Way To Sell Your Note***

What I am about to reveal to you is the subject of many nasty emails I get from other brokers....angry brokers.

Angry because what I am about to tell you takes money out of their pockets and puts it back into yours.

All brokers are in possession of a "little black book" of the "real note buyers and investors".

Private individuals mostly but it also includes institutional note buyers.

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.
