Working with Note Investors
Note investors use their own savings or capital they have raised to purchase consumer paper. This can be anything from buy-here pay here auto paper to rent to own furniture. By far, however, the most popular product area is residential owner financed mortgage notes due to their exceptional collateral. All such note investing is considered sub-prime since it usual involves an owner who could not qualify for a traditional mortgage or loan offered through a bank or similar institution.
Note Brokers and Cash Flow Brokers work closely with institutional note investors and others that are wholesale buyers of their various products. Brokers earn a “finders fee” when referring a note seller to the appropriate institution. In most cases, brokers (finders) are not required to obtain professional licenses so long as the remain strictly “finders” and do not get involved in contracting or completing legal documents. More on mortgage note investing.
Mortgage Note Brokers
Rather than investing in mortgages, note brokers use various marketing methods to seek out holders of mortgage notes that need to raise cash for various reasons and are willing to sell their high-yield notes to do so. In their valuable role as “finders”, note brokers usually align themselves with one or two institutional note buyers who will pay a “finder’s fee” for quality referrals that result in a successful note purchase.
Cash Flow Brokers: Expanded Opportunities
Without question, Cash Flow Brokering is a step up from traditional mortgage note brokering and is an exceptional (and popular) vocation. From a cash investment standpoint, brokering cash flows is at the opposite end of the spectrum from “note investing”. Actually investing in notes requires capital and lots of it. Brokering in cash flows is probably one of the least expensive entrepreneurial enterprises to launch. It is very, very networking intensive but requires little in the way of other expenses. In fact, if you are very active with social media and online networking, you can be in the industry as a finder, operating at full throttle, for less than $50 per month including a website, hosting, and a CRM system.
Successful note brokers (finders) spend endless hours building lists of prospects as well as lists and relationships with professionals (such as accounting professional) that can lead to referrals. You will definitely need a CRM (Contact Relationship Manager) for this business but quality systems such as Pipedrive, can be subscribed to for under $20 per month. The larger your network of professionals, the more referrals will come your way. It takes time and persistence, however, to develop these relationships and the problem most common among those that enter this very popular industry is they simply lack the ability and perseverance to stick with it.
