Landlords headaches

Seller financing

The Note Agency has unparalleled experience in Seller Financing. So, this is by far our flagship product, as it is one of our most powerful financial tools!

Our knowledge in the structuring of Seller Financing transactions continues to deliver favorable results. For starters, you have the advantage of reducing taxable capital gains.

In addition, our building owners achieve premium valuations that are in most cases higher than if financed by standard institutional Lenders. As a result, typically buyers are more agreeable to accept a slightly higher price, vs trying to qualify with a traditional lender. This could be another of the Property Owners Remedies!

The note agency provides landlords remedies!

Mortgage Notes

We purchase and sell real estate notes in a variety of property categories for our investors, as well as for our own portfolio.

When you sell your building with Seller Financing, a Note is created to reflect the term, rate, etc. We pay strict attention to the necessary due diligence so that it is properly “Paper Up” for compliance purposes.
In addition, we adhere to Dodd-Frank, which refers to the borrower’s Ability to Repay, and other regulations.
This measure will ensure the note is recognized as a tradeable instrument in the open market. So, once the seasoning (6-to 12 months of collected payments) has occurred, the note will then be considered a “Performing Note”.

our expertise

Property Owners Remedies

Professional Due Diligence

Whether we buy, sell, or simply help to create a Seller Finance Note, we use nationally accredited third party companies. They range from Escrow, Title, Appraisal, to Specialized Real Estate Attorneys etc. These servicing companies not only ensure transparency but also make certain assets as well as borrowers are properly vetted. In the acquisition and disposition of properties, we rely on multiple listing services in an effort to expand our reach to larger broker audiences. We also utilize escrow/title companies that are versed in settling and closing 2 to 4 unit building transactions.

Property Analysis

Research, visual inspections, Landlords Solutions and constant communications with landlords/owners and residents will lead us to establish proper, coherent valuations used in the decision making process for both ourselves and our clients. Fundamental analysis is followed and combined with 'gut feeling' experience developed thru more than 58 years of the combined experience of our team of senior investors.

Make sense Investment

We use a number of financial tools and measures/indicators like ITV's (investment-to- value), ITB's (investment-to-balance) and LTV's (Loan-to-value) among other elements when analyzing a Seller Finance Note. For the acquisition/disposition of properties, we use Cap Rates, Gross Rent Multipliers and price per Unit approaches to arrive at correct valuations. They are all geared to achieve and maximize IRR's (internal rates of returns) and long-term yields for our clients and our own portfolio of investments.

An Actual Case Study:

Our client recently found and invested in a 4 unit building located in Bakersfield, CA. The asking price for this property was $260,000. The buyer will purchase the property with 20% down and paid 2% in closing cost, so the buyer will invest $57,200 in total. Buyer got a great loan for 5.5% rate for 30 years, the monthly payment is $1,180.

Let’s look at the figures, assuming no vacancies:

Rents $650×4 $2,600
Property Taxes $350
Landlord policy insurance $150
Property Management company 10% of rents $260
Water bill $150
Trash $75
Gardener and cleaning $125
Mortgage payment $1,180
Repairs $200
Total Monthly Profit $110

Instead, the investor purchased a note for the same investment, $57,200?

Mortgage Note $57,200
Interest Rate 7%
Note Term 360 months
Monthly payment $380.55
