Lauren J.

“I’ve invested with Chris on two of his note funds so far. He has been very informative and transparent throughout the process. Chris is also a wonderful mentor and I have learned so much from him. I look forward to many more years of investing with him and learning from him!”

Jay C.

“I’ve been an investor with Chris Seveney since 2019. I was an avid listener of his “Good Deeds Investing” podcast and was impressed by his deep knowledge of the notes industry and his willingness to share his experience and insights. I became an early investor in his note fund and I appreciate his steady performance, transparency and professionalism in investor communication and service. He is a great partner in my exploration of the wonderful world of notes investing.”

Ron L.

“I have invested with Chris on more than one occasion, and have purchased assets from Chris as well. In all cases, Chris has consistently been honest, upfront, and easy to do business with. My investments with Chris have been easy for me (no drama), and I have been pleased with the returns. I currently invest with Chris and plan to do so in the future.”

J. Max

“No matter the level of due diligence you perform as a potential note fund investor, trust in the manager(s) will be the most critical component.  My experience with Chris is that integrity is a characteristic he will not compromise.”

Why Invest in Distressed Mortgages?

Notes are secured by an interest in the property perfected by a mortgage or deed of trust. Since notes are discount from the loan balance and property value, it can provide the flexibility to either assist the homeowner in a new payment plan or pursue legal action only when necessary to secure our interest in the property.

Why Own the Note Instead of the Owning Property?

If you drive through a metropolitan area, what is the sign on the tallest building say? Nine out of Ten times the sign will be a bank. Being the lender reduces the likelihood of owning property for investment which comes with the headaches of being a landlord. . How many times have you called your bank to fix your toilet?

I Have Heard the Terms “Performing” and “Non-Performing” Note, What is the Difference?

Performance refers to how well the borrower has been at keeping payments current on the note. When a borrower is current on their mortgage it is “performing”. If the borrower falls behind on payments greater than 90 days then the loan is considered “non-performing”.

Can we invest in Notes using a Retirement account like a Self Directed IRA or Solo 401k

Absolutely!  Many of our investors use their self-directed IRA to invest in notes. In fact, a vast majority of private investors take advantage of the tax savings offered through a Self-directed IRA, ROTH, Solo 401k, or SIMPLE plan. The purchase is coordinated through your account administrator using their Direction of Investment (DOI) form and process.

What is the benefit of investing with an IRA?

One of the most important benefits of an IRA is the ability to grow your money tax-deferred. With IRAs, you won’t pay current income tax on any investment gains, until those earnings are withdrawn.

Do You Do Joint Venture Deals?

We do not do individual joint ventures. If you were interested in an individual joint venture we can provide recommendations to you on investors who do joint ventures.


Do I Need an Entity such as an LLC to invest in notes?

We are not accountants or legal professionals and you should seek the advice of these professionals in order to make this decision as every person’s situation is different. We will state that if you are in our management or mentoring program, the note is owned by you/your entity. For all notes we own, none are owned in our personal name. 

Do you only buy notes in your local area?

No. We have built an expansive network of realtors, attorneys, property preservation companies and other investors from across the united states and currently own notes in over 35 states all the way from Arizona to Maine to Florida and in between.

Do you buy both first and second position loans

At this time our focus is on first position loans. While we do hold several second position notes in our portfolio, it is not our primary focus.

What is an accredited investor?

According to the SEC an individual accredited investor is anyone who either has earned income of more than $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the last two years and reasonably expects to earn the same for the current year, or Has a net worth over $1 million, either individually or together with a spouse (excluding the value of a primary residence). The definition was recently changed and can be found here https://www.sec.gov/rules/final/2020/33-10824.pdf

Does your Fund only Acquire Non Performing Notes?

No. The Fund is acquires performing and non performing loans to acquire a balance to maximize returns while minimizing risk by following Modern Portfolio Theory https://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/modernportfoliotheory.asp

Will I Be Able to Personally Review All the Documents When Investing in The Fund

Absolutely!  We are big believers in transparency. We will provide a link to investors for all the files that are part of the loan collateral.

Do our Funds obtain Leverage?

Our funds do not leverage the assets. By not leveraging the assets, Self Directed IRA Investors would not be subject to UBTI (unrelated business taxable income)

What are your Reporting Procedures?

We are true believers in transparency, therefore we provide investors with a live portal where they have access to the current status of every asset in the fund. Investors also have access to balance sheets and P&L statements which are updated monthly. Every quarter we host a live webinar to review the financials and overall status of the fund.

Can We Reinvest our Distributions?

Unfortunately at this time we are not allowing the distributions in the fund to be reinvested back into the fund. But we do allow for investors to invest in funds and partials simultaneously.

How Long is the Fund Open For?

Since our funds offer excess cash distributions and not a straight preferred return only, our funds are only open during a brief 2-3 month period of capital raising. Since Note Funds derive the majority of their profits when the asset is sold, it would not be fair to allow investors to enter the fund in the middle or end of the funds term.

Are there any additional fees when buying a partial?

No. The monthly payment and interest rate are not lowered due to added fees.

What happens if a partial note goes non performing?

We will consult with each other and determine a resolution which includes continuing to pay on the partial or buying out the investor if the loan is more than 120 days past due. We have done over 50 partial deals and have never missed a payment to an investor.

When Buying a Partial, who sends me the payments?

Unlike some other investors who sell partials, we do not have you manage or collect payments form the borrower. We will continue to hold the note with our servicer and payments are made to you through us via ACH typically on the due date. You are not responsible for chasing the borrower for the payment.

When Buying a Partial, is the mortgage recorded in my entities name?

We will execute a Partial Purchase Agreement and Assignment. This is a contractual document but it does not get recorded with the local jurisdiction but is fully enforceable if there were ever to be a default.

What is the Min. Investment for a Partial?

Partial investment can be for as little as $5,000.

What is the term for a Partial?

Partial agreements average five years but can be as short as three years and as long as 10-12 Years. We work with the investor to tailor a custom solution to meet their financial objectives.

With a Partial, are the payments Interest Only?

No. Partial payments are Principal and Interest to the investor at the agreed upon rate.

Will you help me find a note to purchase?

We can provide you with information on where to source notes, but we do not source notes for you.

Can I Buy Notes From You To Mentor Me On?

Unfortunately we will not sell a note in our portfolio to someone who seeks mentoring as we view it as a conflict of interest. We have a fiduciary responsibility to sell our notes for the greatest value and at the same time would mentor the investor on acquiring notes for the best value.

Who owns the note as part of your mentoring program?

You will be the owner of the asset. We will be a consultant to you just as a servicer or attorney would be.
