A majority of our product is lower value below 150,000 as we have found we are able to purchase these types of loans at better pricing than loans above $150,000.

We also focus almost exclusively on residential loans however if you have a commercial loan for sale we are always willing to review a potential opportunity.

Buying Discounted Performing Mortgages instead of rental properties

Gemini Capital Advisors has worked with a number of real estate investors who have converted from buying rental properties to buying discounted mortgages notes and trust deeds. There are pros and cons to both investment strategies which will be covered below.

Part 1: Buying Performing Mortgages Instead of Rental Properties for Cash Flow

Pros:

  1. No Maintenance Costs
  2. Purchase Mortgages with a built in discount
  3. Ability for both monthly cash flow and windfall profits when homeowners sell or refinance to pay you off in full
  4. Less Competition from other investors since this is a growing niche market

Cons:

  1. If a homeowner stops payment the foreclosure process is typically longer and more costly than evicting a tenant
  2. No leverage: There are few to no financing programs available to purchase discounted mortgages

Advice:

  • Find an good source for buying discounted performing loans
  • Utilize a servicing company to handle your mortgage statements and customer service for the borrower. http://www.trustfci.com www.sellerloans.com
