Banks are in the business of lending money to qualified, solid borrowers. When they come across borrowers who can’t pay their monthly mortgage, they have a decision to make. They can continue trying to get the borrowers to pay, foreclose on the property or, they can sell these loans to mortgage note investors at substantial discounts.

Most banks prefer the latter choice of selling off these non-performing notes to qualified note investors. They get to write off a portion of the loans and get them off their books.

Because of their decision to sell these loans, banks literally created a whole new industry for note investors!

Imagine buying these second mortgage notes for pennies on the dollar. Now imagine working with the borrowers to keep them in their homes, while earning a hefty return on your investment somewhere between 20 – 30%.


Many factors go into deciding whether to invest in first or second mortgages. Two of the biggest ones are how much money you have to invest and what is your risk-tolerance?

Here are some of the important factors of why we love seconds:

  • You can start investing with as little as $15,000. Expect to pay between $.10 to $.40 on the dollar.
  • The note is secured by the collateral of the property (just like a first mortgage), but is in second position.
  • A slightly riskier investment, but with higher returns.
  • Because of the lower purchase price, there are many options for keeping the borrower in their home and starting to pay.
  • You can buy notes anywhere in the country and don’t need to live nearby.
