How much CASH can I expect to receive by selling my note or contract?

Exactly how much cash you can expect depends on a number of factors. These factors include the amount the buyer paid in cash towards the down payment, the amount of current buyer’s equity, the creditworthiness of the buyer, the type of property, the interest rate, the length of the term, and the length of time you have been receiving payments. We will review your documentation taking all of these factors into account, and present you an extremely generous CASH offer.

Do you have a minimum or maximum amount of a balance that you purchase?

Not really, but if your remaining unpaid principal balance is less than $5,000 there would not be any financial benefit for you to sell your note or contract. As long as there is sufficient equity, acceptable buyer’s credit, a positive payment history, and the type of property is within our guidelines, we would definitely be interested in providing our absolute highest maximum CASH offer on ANY remaining unpaid principal balance. NOTE: Balances above $250,000 will more than likely be offered to be purchased as partial or split-partial purchases, unless the equity is very high, such as in the 40% to 50% range.

What if I don’t need all the money right now?

When you sell your note or contract, you have many various financial options for receiving your money. You could choose to sell all of the remaining payments or only a portion of the remaining payments right now and then receive payments again in the future. Or you could choose to sell just a portion of the payment stream, and still receive part of the scheduled payment. Or you could choose to sell part of the balloon payment, if applicable, with any combination of the above mentioned plans. The way we structure the purchase of your note or contract will depend entirely on your immediate needs. Once we present all of your available options, you can then decide which one is best for you.

How long will it take for me to get my money?

You will usually get your money within two to three weeks. We have found that it typically takes this long to get the appraisal or BPO, complete the title work, and prepare all of the documents necessary to close the transaction.

What should I do if I haven’t sold my property yet?

This manual provides the techniques and strategies you won't find anywhere else.

Please click here to obtain this manual or for additional information. If you want to use our “Credit Application and Authorization” form to obtain credit reports and scores for a potential buyer, please click here.

How do I determine the current equity in the property?

To determine the current equity in the property, add the total of ALL the loans/liens against the property, (if you have an All-Inclusive Trust Deed or Wrap-Around Mortgage, use just the remaining unpaid principal balance of that loan/lien), and divide that figure by the true current market value of the property, then subtract that figure from 100. Example: Total of ALL the Loans/Liens = $82,648; TRUE Current Market Value = $104,500; 82,648 ÷ 104,500 = .79; 100 - 79 = 21. There is currently 21% equity in the property provided the true current market value amount is correct. The higher the equity, the more your note or contract will be worth when you decide to sell.

Why do you require my buyer’s Social Security Numbers?

One of the most important factors in the sale of your Real Estate secured Note or Contract is the creditworthiness of the buyer. If the buyers have an unacceptable credit history, they are a higher risk, and there will be a larger discount with the offer we present to you, if we can present you an offer at all. Your buyers MUST have an acceptable credit report, and usually the credit scores of ALL buyers MUST be 600 or higher. We are required, as part of the due diligence process, to review your buyer’s credit reports and scores prior to submitting your file for preliminary review. Since you are the buyer’s creditor, you DO NOT need to have their permission to obtain their credit report. We are simply pulling their credit report on your behalf to be able to determine the risk factor and we MUST have their Social Security Numbers to be able to obtain their credit reports and scores. We will be unable to provide you with the absolute highest maximum CASH offer without the buyer’s credit reports and scores.

What is an All-Inclusive Trust Deed or Wrap-Around Mortgage?

An All-Inclusive Trust Deed, also known as a Wrap-Around Mortgage, refers to encumbering or "wrapping" the current first lien on the property. For example, let’s assume your property is worth $100,000 and your current first lien balance is $50,000. When you sell your home, if you are able to receive $20,000 as a down payment, you would create an All-Inclusive Trust Deed or Wrap-Around Mortgage, for $80,000. When you sell your newly created wrap-around note, the current first lien is then paid off in full, and the All-Inclusive Trust Deed or Wrap-Around Mortgage will then become the first lien. You will then receive the difference between the amount owed on the current first lien and the cash you receive from selling your newly created All-Inclusive Trust Deed or Wrap-Around Mortgage.

Do you buy notes and contracts secured by all types of real estate?

We pay instant CASH for any type of Real Estate secured Note or Contract in first lien position, or which completely wraps around the first lien, (also known as "All-Inclusive" or "Wrap-Around"), which has a current minimum amount of equity, payments are current, title is clear, buyer’s credit is acceptable, property is in good (or better) condition, and is secured by the types of properties within our guidelines, subject to underwriting review. Please review What We Buy for the complete list with specific descriptions and equity requirements.

What is the difference between negative and positive amortization?

Negative amortization occurs when the payment does not equal the amount of interest being charged on a note or contract, therefore the actual principal balance increases each payment over the term of the loan. Positive amortization is when the payment calls for a sufficient amount of interest to be paid towards decreasing the remaining principal balance for every payment received over the term of the loan. We (and/or our investors) are NOT interested in purchasing any note or contract which has negative amortization.

Why should I even consider selling my note or contract?

First, you might need the money for taxes, medical expenses, debts, college tuition, a new home or a new car, a large investment, a business opportunity, or even possibly a well-deserved vacation. Second, you will receive a large lump sum in CASH which you can use for any purpose you like. And third, you will no longer have the worry or hassle of collecting late or missed monthly payments, the possibility of default or foreclosure, or the inconvenience of supplying year-end tax forms.

Will you buy my note or contract as soon as I sell my property?

We will not be able to purchase your note or contract until you have received at least the very first payment, (sometimes 3 payments), usually scheduled within 30 days after the sale of your property. If the buyer’s credit report shows unsatisfactory payment records, we may have to wait until you have received a minimum of 3 scheduled monthly payments, perhaps more, to establish a positive payment history for the buyer. Rehabbed or flipped properties MUST have a MINIMUM of 6 to 12 months seasoning.

Are you the actual investor or a broker?

Both! We have purchased numerous Real Estate secured Notes and Contracts in most of the states we operate in for our own account, but it depends entirely on our current situation, or to be more explicit, if we have the immediate available CASH! We prefer to be diversified and tend to be more interested in smaller balances, usually those under $50,000 for our own account, and in fairly close proximity to our location, within an easy day’s drive. Our friendly private investors around the country don’t have these limitations, and definitely more CASH on hand, so that’s when we contact them for the highest CASH offer possible. Whichever direction we take at the time, you can be assured that we will always do our best to provide you with the absolute highest maximum CASH offer available.
