Why Are Mortgage Notes Useful?

Comments Off


Mortgage notes are not a new form of financing, and have been very popular over the last decade in helping people to sell and buy property. They allow a buyer and a seller to come to an agreement where finances are concerned and where both parties can be happy with the arrangement. A seller will finance the buyer for part or all of the purchase price on a piece of property. The buyer is bound to repay the agreed amounts over a set period of time and then make a balloon payment at the end of the term.

There are many companies that will purchase mortgage notes. They will not pay 100% of the mortgage note value, and will only purchase an amount thereof. Therefore , it is important that you shop around for the best value buyer of your mortgage note.

The price that you will be offered on your existing mortgage note will be dependant on a few things. Some of them are; the interest rate on the existing mortgage note, the term of the note and the credit of the debtor or buyer as well as the current value of your home.

All mortgage notes terms are negotiable. This means that when a vendor is setting up a mortgage note with a purchaser they can stipulate the term, frequency of payments, the interest rate, the method of compounding interest, if there are options to sell the note as well as the consequences of not making repayments and the various methods of foreclosure.

Mortgage notes can be a very useful way for a buyer to attain property where they may not have otherwise been able to. It is also a good way for a seller to off load a property that may have had difficulty being sold in a conventional manner. As with all finance agreements between individuals, it is always best to seek advice from a financial advisor prior to signing any documentation.
