Due Diligence is key to successful and safe note investing. In this video Dave Franecki shares the 6 Key Factors of Note Due Diligence
What’s My Note Worth?
A question all note sellers have and have a right to know.
Timing Your Mortgage Note Sale is everything.
So, when is the correct time to sell your mortgage note?
The following utube video with my friends Walter Wofford and Jim Ingersoll is so to the point as to the value of trusts in any form of a real estate transaction.
They discuss the ultra importance of transactional privacy and how that helps with asset protection.Under what circumstances would you want the general public to know the properties you own?
Trusts provide privacy and effectively separate all of your investment assets. They are not hard to use and provide tremendous privacy in your deals as a trustee is used to hold title and the trust agreement is not recorded at the courthouse.
Under what circumstances would you not like the public to know that you own a property?
What are the benefits of using trusts?
1. Privacy – Keep your name and LLC out of public records
2. Liens and judgments
3. Probate benefits
4. Sell the entity, not the property
5. Personal property trusts for IRAs, cars, boats, etc

CASE STUDY 3
This post is a 3rd in a series of 4 regarding how a perfectly good performing note goes south due to life event situation.
This particular note was in the small town of Marshall, IN. The note -Contract for Deed- was originated in 2009. The payors significant other passed in 2010. My IRA purchased the note in 2015. The note was scheduled to mature in June, 2019. I was unaware of the loss of the male payor. The payment history evolved into a rolling 120 days, meaning after 4 months the payor paid the balance or part of the balance to stay out of the forfeiture procedure. However this payment history caught up with the payor in that there was a $5,000 unpaid balance balloon that went beyond the due date of the note.
Fast forward to February, 2019, I was tired of constantly contacting the payor. I did not want to go thru the forfeiture process as to take back the house –due to condition, was not a viable option. Plus 9 months and $3,000 in attorney fees were not viable. In prior conversations, it was discovered she was the caregiver of her mother and was not working. He current husband was not working. After multiple conversations, she realized she needed help. Her Dad was brought into the conversation. He agreed to help her out. They agreed to bring the payments current. In exchange to removing the deceased payors name from the CFD, they agreed to a loan modification which extended the term 12 months, and stay current. If they ran late past 15 days, the newly executed Quit Claim deed would be recorded and my IRA would own the house.
It was a win-win. The payor benefited by having the deceased partner removed from any claim of ownership, the loan was brought current, I avoided the possibility of a 9 month forefeiture procedure and the payor will own her house free and clear in 12 months with the extension of the balloon due date.
Even though the remaining balance was small, the solution was perfect for all.
I have learned, if one works with the payor and developes a dialog, future unfortunate events can be worked out much easier. But, it is all about how can the payor feels and appreciates that they are being helped so they will be open to a solution which also benefits the note holder in the event needed.
This case study was presented at the May 1 Note Investors Forum Meetup
As discussed in my prior blog, Note workouts are not rocket science. It is a matter of treating every party fairly.
CASE STUDY 2
This 2nd case study happened on a 2nd Mishawaka, IN property. My
partner & I bought a non-performing note(NPN) in October, 2014. The payor had become functionally unable to do anything due to a debilitating disease and had been out of the house for 2 years. We tried a workout which was not viable but did get a deed in lieu of foreclosure with cash for keys.
After fixing the place up, we found a recently divorced lady. She was happy with a probtionary rent-to-own for 12 months a and Seller-carry to follow with 10% down. She was also qualified by an RMLO oer Dodd-Frank. We sold the 1st note to a partial note investor and kept the second.
Fast forward, the payor stopped paying due to illness. Again we developed a good working relationship with her. After a series of discussions, she confirmed that she really did want to stay and agreed to a loan modification. The “we” was the partial note buyer.
The end result is after consulting with our legal counsel and her daughter, the payor signed a Quit Claim deed to be held in escrow and agreed to a payoff schedule for her to get caught up on the back payments. If she falls behind on any payment for more than 15 days we can record the Quit Claim deed. My company will own the house. We have avoided the the foreclosure process to boot. The bottom line: the payor is happy and agreed to bring the loan current, the partial buyer is happy as she is geting paid, my partner is happy as we are both collecting on our second and have avoided a negative situation –the long forfeiture process.. This was/is a total win-win.
Potentially, we may have to record the deed and rehab, but for now it is all good.
