Quick Guide to Mortgage Note Investing (#1 of 5-part series)
Mortgage note investing is an alternative real estate investment strategy that allows you to become a lender instead of a homeowner.
It involves purchasing distressed debt, which banks often sell with steep discounts to minimize default risks. These mortgage notes are available as performing and non-performing notes. When a borrower regularly fulfills repayment obligations, those mortgage notes are known as performing notes, while mortgages with overdue payments are termed non-performing.
Now, you need a certain level of expertise to select mortgage notes. At 7E Investments, we use an in-depth assessment framework to identify and purchase high-potential notes from banks.
