Cash Flow Expo is only one week away but before we get into any of that we have to ask you a really odd question... ...Do you remember as a kid spending hours carefully stacking dominos one after another in a row until at some point you knock over the first one and watch them all fall down?

50 Ways To Leave Your…SFH Note

A mistake many investors and brokers make is to focus solely on notes secured by single family houses (SFHs). Unfortunately, that is a last-century approach.

The Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 also negatively impacted the creation of notes, most likely because its complexity and consequent potential liabilities discourages … [Read more...]
