Foreclosures Create Owner Financing Demand

Over 2.8 million properties were slapped with foreclosure filings in 2009 – a staggering 120 percent increase in the past two years.

Discover why this bad mortgage crisis increases demand for seller financing and opportunity in the cash flow note business.

The Crisis

You can’t pick up a newspaper or watch the news without hearing about the increase in foreclosures. Last year 1 in every 45 homes in the U.S. received a foreclosure filing.

And the trend isn’t over yet. The first quarter of 2010 saw a 7 percent increase from the last quarter of 2009. (Source: Press Release from

The Challenge

Foreclosures are tough all around. They decrease property values, tighten lending requirements, and devastate the lives of displaced families.

So what happens when all these homeowners try to put the pieces of their lives back together and purchase another home?

Foreclosures stay on a credit report for up to seven years. A foreclosure in this market means a substantial loss to the bank, so they are unlikely to grant a new home mortgage loan anytime soon.

The Solution

When banks say “No” to a bad credit mortgage many buyers turn to owner financing. The seller agrees to “be the bank” and accept payments over time from the buyer.

This creative financing solution helps buyers with bad credit purchase a home. It also gives them a chance to rebuild their credit over time so they can once again qualify for traditional bank financing.

The Opportunity

Private mortgage notes are a staple of the cash flow business. As this segment of the market increases so does the demand for consultants and note brokers. Many sellers are looking for help on:

  • Attracting Buyers in a Tight Real Estate Market
  • Selling a Property Fast
  • Structuring Notes for Top Dollar Pricing
  • Selling Mortgage, Land Contract, or Trust Deed Payments for Cash Now

These are all areas a cash flow consultant can assist sellers in finding help from qualified real estate professionals and note investors.
