Where to find mortgage notes to buy.  According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, the U.S. forbearance rate measuring the share of mortgages with suspended payments fell seven basis points to 5.83% last week,

“With more borrowers exiting forbearance in the prior week, the share of loans in forbearance declined across all loan types. Almost half of forbearance exits to date have been from borrowers who remained current while in forbearance, or reinstated by paying back past-due amounts,” said Mike Fratantoni, MBA’s senior vice president and chief economist.”

While forbearance levels have begun to return to those seen in early April, the MBA said numbers remain remarkably high, with an estimated 2.9 million homeowners in forbearance plans.

Ongoing Recovery Needed

According to Fratantoni, further improvement will require ongoing recovery in the job market and additional fiscal stimulus, which looks like Congress won’t finish until after January 2021.

Some homeowners will not make it out of forbearance. That presents an opportunity for us to invest in notes and deeds. As note investors, we can help people stay in their homes after “life” happens to them, and we get to make money doing it. That raises an important question: where to find mortgage notes to buy.

Where to Find Mortgage Notes to Buy

Hard money lenders, individual investors, and community banks can auction-off or sell-off mortgage notes (the notes can be current or in various states of default)

Investors can bid on and purchase these notes and start receiving payments from the borrowers

You become the bank and service the loan yourself or hire a third-party servicing company that also deals with late pays.

How to Buy and Sell Notes and Deeds

  • Look at the most recent quarterly balance sheet that lists liabilities for any bank associated with FDIC insurance
  • See the many residential and multifamily loans
  • You can check the status of loans (30-60-90-120 days past due) in pre-foreclosure
  • You can contact the bank directly to see if you can bid on those notes – you bid less than the face value for those loans
  • Smaller community banks are best to deal with
  • Larger banks like Chase may ask you to put down $100K plus to be on their list to bid
  • Ask the smaller community banks to send a spreadsheet (called a tape) of all deeds of trusts that you can bid upon that are 90-days past due. The spreadsheet says all the details (principal balance, monthly payment, property address, fees, etc.)  You can bid on the entire list of “cherry-pick” the deeds you want
  • The property backs up all deeds. You can also research to determine the value of the property
  • Ask the bank for a list of all their performing and non-performing notes up for bid
  • If you are interested in cash flow, you target the list of discounted notes for those that are past due (60-180 days past due) – the discount is on the principal balance of the mortgage (can sometimes get for 20 cents on the dollar)
