What is real estate note investing?

Real estate investing may be something you’re already familiar with. What many people don’t realize is that there are other forms of real estate investing besides simply buying a house, fixing it up and flipping or renting the property.

When you buy non-performing notes, you are working directly with the bank and will get access to properties long before the general public. Not only are you buying at a deep discount, but you also have a greater number of exit strategies available to you.

RealtyTrac reported that, at the end of 2014, there were still more than 7 million residential homeowners seriously underwater in this country. Those underwater homeowners mean the supply of real estate notes available at discounted prices is plentiful.
