Recently Closed A Bulk Performing Notes Deal, Looking for More Assets!


Fix and Flippers, LLC has closed a bulk Performing Notes purchase transaction with two private companies for an undisclosed amount.

For many years I’ve attempted to locate a perfect match: a buyer and a seller for non-performing or performing notes. Like many colleagues, I’ve encountered the most frustrating situations: after being hand-walked into a servicing company 5 years ago, I was delivered notes on a platter, but I hadn’t identified a true buyer, and consequently, I burned my relationship because my “buyers” did not or could not close anything.

Then over the years I’ve met many true and serious note buyers who could not prove their capabilities to me because I had no notes to sell them. This was soon to change.

Recently I was introduced to a note seller through a referral partner, they proved to hold some product of interest but like most deals – ultimately fell apart.

Rewind to December 2016, originating from a Craigslist ad – I get a response to an ad I post regularly about private trust deed lenders who make loans to flippers, especially in 2nd position, as gap lenders, he explained that although in his companies’ 25 year history they’ve purchased performing and non-performing notes as well as REO from banks, credit unions, savings and loans, builders, mortgage companies, private equity firms, and that they’d buy a single loan and has closed $100M loan portfolio and now they’ve had success buying from individual investors and offering them an outlet.

He wanted me to refer my private lenders to them, but of course, I needed a way to vet their company.

All year I’ve been sending them note packages and they make bids and proceed with due diligence, which lead to notes with no discount, heavily shopped, fake packages, notes with no title policy and/or missing or incomplete paperwork, until finally one of the many leads I’ve introduced to them: brings a fresh portfolio of 20+ performing, agency quality performing notes, of course many things went wrong with the deal, with the usual transaction drama that ultimately resulted in a large portion of the notes to be dropped from the purchase, but finally it closed!

Now we can officially add this to our resume of different transactions we’ve facilitated or been a part of including single family, bulk single family, an operating business, various kinds of loans/funding and now bulk notes.

This is the time of year when lenders may have loans on their books that they want to get off before the end of the year. Also during the year institutions will lose investors and investors decide to discontinue programs. They can sell to my buyer.

Experts would agree with me when I state that: A portfolio or seasoned, long-term, low coupon fixed rate loans can become an asset risk liability…

Sub-Prime loans that remain in company pipelines and portfolio can become a risk liability.

Private Portfolio Builder Program – Build Your Nest Egg!


I’m working with a group of Midwest originating brokers who are helping clients acquire assets and build their nest eggs. This is their program.

A Program designed for Real Estate investors to Acquire, Cash flow,

and Re capitalize on Rental Properties!

As Real Estate  Investors  know these days; Banks, Lenders and even Private Capital want large down payments to purchase non‐owner occupied investment properties, for the purposes of building a rental portfolio. The secret to building wealth in real estate is building large monthly positive cash flows. In the recent years, that has become  increasingly difficult.

So, let’s isolate the biggest problems real estate investors have in growing their portfolio, while explaining how the Private Portfolio Builder Program overcomes these issues:

Growth Capital Whether it’s a 20% Down Payment or Larger, that’s a lot of capital to put out there to purchase a rental property. Even if the internal rate of return is 20%, it still takes 5 years for a Real Estate Investor to re capitalize their down payment investment.

Lack of access to growth capital puts any business, whether real estate, or selling hamburgers at risk of not being able to grow. A simple  rule of thumb is if you are not growing your business, you are losing profitability, due to the increase in COGS and other operating costs that virtually increase  every year!

With banks frowning upon Real Estate Investors and their businesses,  this is still a tough environment for those that need to have access to capital to grow and thrive, instead of just survive!

Solution The Private Portfolio Builder Program has partnered with a 2nd Mortgage Lender that will only lend to participants of the program. This 2nd Mortgage Lender has great rates, and has agreed to lend a 2nd Mortgage on any of the Program’s assets.  This second mortgage will provide:

  1. 20% Down Payment required by the 1st Mortgage.
  2. $15,000 Above the Purchase Price to re capitalize the investor to allow for more Acquisitions within the communities. This is funded through the Community Reinvestment Loan.
  3. Utilize this program for up to 4 purchases of Multi Family Properties (2-4 units)

Why is this Program so Advantageous to a Real Estate Investor looking for Cash Flow Producing assets?

  1. The Community Reinvestment  Loan allows Participants to Purchase other Rental Assets and Increase  Portfolio Holdings through our $15,000 Recap Program.
  2. This Stabilized Program will ensure  long term Success  with our Asset Management Strategy.
  1. Turn-Key and Auto Payments through our development and Voucher Program.

Now, this doesn’t mean that program Participants do not have to put down a down payment or have reserves. The first mortgage still requires the down payment and reserves, so that must be placed into the transaction. What we have done is developed a relationship that will recapitalize your down payment plus $15,000 recapitalization,  allowing you to continue to build your portfolio, while capturing the cash flows that our Program’s buildings will offer!

Yes. This program has complexity to it, and does require a two step closing of the purchase 1st Mortgage, and then our Lender’s 2nd mortgage a few days after the closing the 1st. We are not only real estate investors, but we understand banking and private lending very well. This is the only way that this program becomes viable, as people without the knowledge and experience of the Chicago Real Estate Markets along with the banking and financing markets would simply not be able to fund these deals.

Stable Income – It is very important to have the stability of income when you are a real estate investor. This program is designed through a section 8 Voucher Program that is funded and dispersed through the City of Chicago’s low housing Program, ensuring that payments are always received between  the 1st and 5th of each month, so there is no more tracking down tenant’s rental payments, therefore protecting your monthly income.  How many horror stories have we all heard about tenants  that just do not pay their rent, and the eviction process can take months?

Solution The Private Portfolio Builder Program focuses  on subsidizing the assets that are purchased by members. We utilize local management companies that have experience  in placing long term section 8 renters  and other  Chicago Subsidized Housing Programs into units. This ensures  that each investment performs monthly, and reduces the turnover rate due to Lower Income Tenants move less frequently.  By providing an experienced Maintenance Staff, and an Experienced Management Company, Program Participants benefit by reducing costs, while increasing the monthly rental by 20% more than market rates, and producing a steady subsidized cash flow. Subsidized Tenants are a great way to build passive cash flows. When a Landlord provides safe,  clean,  updated  living accommodations  in the City of Chicago, you can count on a high occupancy status from just the referrals alone.

Section 8 pays each month during the duration of the contract,  and if you work with the tenant, and the case worker, it becomes a long‐term relationship. It’s just a matter of providing Safe, Clean, Updated housing, and then communicating with your customer (tenant) monthly to ensure everything is going OK. Subsidized Programs  in the City of Chicago have large waiting lists of Tenants to place into rental properties. There is no shortage of demand in this sector.

Business Modeling Very few small investors professionally model their business, and ensure that their small business is meeting the needs of the community it is located in. How many investors plan their business from start to exit? The better question is, how many investors align themselves with current market trends? What about having the capital relationships to take you from start-up to growth stage?

Solution Years of experience  in Chicago coupled with professional relationships that understand the Business Model, means the Private Portfolio Builder Program is not only profitable, but is a great example of how to model your business. This program is not only specific to Chicago, but can be done in other markets of the Country.

As we expand again, we shall offer more markets,  but Chicago offers a great off market wholesale environment versus a waiting list of subsidized tenants waiting to lease a unit. Since the purchase prices have not recovered as much steam as other markets in the US, but rental markets have risen.

Private Portfolio Builder Program Key Points:

1.)  Off Market Inventory only.

2.)  2, 3, and 4 unit residential properties only.

3.)  Preference  is given to 2, 3, and 4 or 5 bed room unit mixes.

New Funding Options: EMD Funding & Transactional Funding


firstpropertyundercontract

Program #1

Here is a rundown on the different things we think you should know about how EMD funding works for our clients.

  1. Risk free as we can make it. We do not charge any upfront fees for processing, etc. If the escrow falls through, you owe us nothing. (We just get our EMD funds back and hope to make money together on a future deal.) Our markups usually amount to a very small percentage of the EMD requester’s overall profit; you keep the vast majority of your hard-earned profits in your pocket.
  1. We are (second line) co-buyers on all EMD deals; that means we get a full flow of all paperwork during escrow, control contingencies right along with you, etc. We have no desire to own the property or create an undue burden; we just want our EMD monies protected during escrow and being a co-buyer (temporary financial partner) provides us that protection without harming the buyer or the seller. Once escrow closes, we are no longer involved with the property.
  1. Our earnest money deposit (EMD) funds can never be allowed to go hard (nonrefundable) during escrow; the funds must stay soft the entire time. After all, the “D” in EMD stands for DEPOSIT; those funds are not a down payment. However, some sellers, realtors and investors mix up the two. The job of the EMD fund requester (the buyer) is to bring in exit strategy monies (i.e. full purchase price) either with proof of cash or is approved for a loan (provable with a Letter of Commitment or LOC from the lender) by close of escrow, thereby removing any monetary incentive for the seller to want to try to keep/hold onto the EMD monies. In the case of a wholesale contract flip, the key element is that you must have a Qualified End Buyer under contract by the time the contingency period has expired. (and who has proof of cash or is approved for a loan).

Here is why it is so important that EMD funds stay soft until escrow closes: Should escrow fall through for any reason (buyer’s fault, seller’s fault, nobody’s fault), and the EMD has already gone hard, some sellers  are tempted to try to keep the earnest money deposit monies as their own. We could lose the EMD funds we put up for you; that is a not a risk we are willing to take. Thus it is vitally important that all offers made to sellers must include this fact. Doing so during the offering stage just makes it a normal part of the buying process, thus hopefully preventing it from becoming a problem later.

  1. To prevent either #2 or #3 above from becoming a problem, please
  1. Ensure that the verbiage in your offer—Letter of Intent (LOI) or PSA (Purchase & Sale Agreement) or Residential Purchase Agreement (RPA)—hopefully has been scrubbed of any and all verbiage that might cause the EMD funds to go hard (nonrefundable) before the close of escrow.
  1. The offer must include certain specific and mandatory verbiage (see in italics below). The italicized text needs to be inserted into the offer prior to putting the offer in front of the seller; the intent is to effectively override the standard boilerplate verbiage that appears in virtually all offer forms that gives the seller the (false) impression that somehow they can keep EMD the monies should escrow fall through. Of course the following can be introduced later during the counter offer or escrow stages, of the transaction as an addendum, but by then the seller is probably pretty much locked in mentally to the original boilerplate text and he may take umbrage at having such a “surprise” thrust at him so late in the game. THAT can and does blow up deals. It is much better to insert this into your offer from the get go.

The following supersedes any other deposit-related clauses or contingencies to the contrary, found herein: Should the escrow fail to close for any reason whatsoever—regardless of which party cancels the escrow, or of the status of any contingency, or of the results of any inspection, or of the time elapsed between date of acceptance and the scheduled closing date or date of cancellation—the earnest money deposit shall be refunded in full to the Buyer, by issuance of a check from the escrow company (or equivalent entity, i.e. title company or lawyer) to the account from which the deposit was received. Further, the buyer may at their discretion do the following:

*   bring in one or more partners during escrow as co-buyers,

*   designate one or more payees, whether co-buyers or third parties, to be paid out of buyer’s funds,

*   submit instructions (from either buyer or co-buyer) to escrow regarding any such disbursements before escrow has prepared final settlement sheets, 

*   require both co-buyers to receive all documents intended for Buyer from escrow, listing agent, transaction coordinators, or others corresponding with Buyer in the course of this transaction, and the signatures of both co-buyers are required for any document which Buyer must sign,

*   in the event that borrowed funds will be utilized by Buyer in this transaction, The Trust as co-buyer will not be a co-borrower, and in any event, The Trust reserves the right to withdraw as a co-buyer at close of escrow.

  1. 1% EMD is the norm (say $5,000 on a $500,000 purchase price). Yet some sellers demand 2%, 5%, 10% or more. NOTE: Anything above 1% may mean you have to pay higher markups.

Analysis: Whether EMD money goes hard or stays soft, and/or whether the EMD percentage is 1% or 10%, the seller receives exactly the same amount of money at close of escrow. That is why soft vs. hard and EMDs higher than 1% should be and usually are non-issues to most sellers once the reality of the situation has been properly explained to them. Besides that, without realizing it, sellers who put up these types of artificially high barriers often cost themselves valuable bidders for their property.

More Analysis: Most of the wholesale contract flippers and rehabbers we work with try to buy Off-Market (OM) properties (not retail MLS-listed); they are seeking property owners who are Distressed, Motivated, and Flexible (DMF) and NEED to sell their property right away. What you will usually find when dealing with most DMF/OMs is that the vast majority simply do not have the luxury of time to dwell on whether the $3000 EMD (on the $300,000 property they are trying to get rid of) stays soft or not. They should be and usually are focused on the getting the $300k in their pocket and moving on, ASAP. In fact, it has been our experience over the years that sellers who concentrate almost solely on finding ways to keep the EMD money may not actually be Distressed, Motivated, and Flexible sellers after all—and maybe you need to find another seller to work with.

  1. EMD money is available for up to a 30 day escrow; that can be extended, but only on a case by case basis and may result in higher markups, thereby increasing your costs.
  1. Make sure the seller is OK with the above; none of it is designed to be harmful to either the seller—or the buyer for that matter. The provisions in the C&P form are simply there to protect our EMD investment capital.
  1. What comes next: Please completely fill out all of the Processing App.
  1. Once we receive the Processing App and offer, we try to provide a tentative green light (if it is justified) within 24 hours—often less.
  1. Any questions, etc. please email them to us. If you have an urgent matter, please feel free to phone. However, email is our preferred method of communication.
  1. BEFORE SENDING ANYTHING IN TO US, PLEASE MAKE SURE For each EMD for which you need funding, please make sure you email us the following, FIRST:
  1. A copy of the seller-accepted offer as an enclosed PDF attachment. Make sure that you have included, in the offer, the “supersedes” verbiage that appears above, and at the very end of the App (below), re: The following supersedes…”. It is strongly advised that you include the “supersedes” text in the initial offer to the seller. If that is not possible, then create an Addendum (signed by the seller) that includes the “supersedes” text and include it with the offer copy you send to us.

Only AFTER you have the seller-signed offer in your hand (that contains the “supersedes” verbiage) should you contact us.
