Why are real estate notes bought and sold?

Noteholders may choose to sell the note to a real estate investor if they have difficulty receiving regular, timely payments on the note or need cash. They sell the note at a discount because it’s based on future payments using today’s dollars.

The sale of the note provides instant cash. And it removes a noteholder from any further responsibility for collecting payments.

Investors who purchase promissory notes because they offer a versatile, collateral-backed real estate investment, not affected by stock market changes. Since notes sell at a discount, investors earn returns from the difference between the discounted price and the real value of the note, plus regular monthly principal and interest payments. Notes can offer a faster and higher return on investment than stocks and bonds.
