Why is broker training so crucial?

Attending the right real estate note broker training will give you the foundational knowledge you need to choose worthwhile investments. For example, a note investor must know how to tell which mortgage notes are likely to be paid in full and which are likely to end in foreclosure. Unless you do your due diligence, you’re likely to spend a lot more time chasing down mortgage payments than necessary.

In addition, the private lender landscape is always changing. Real estate note investing today is not the same as it was in 2008 or in 2017. The industry has changed greatly in recent years and, as a mortgage note broker, it’s up to you to keep pace with current trends. 

Whether you’ve been in the real estate note investing business for years or you’re just starting to explore this investment strategy, taking a broker training course is the best way for you to get caught up on all that this unique industry has to offer,

  • Whether you intend to invest in a performing note or a distressed note
  • What is an acceptable interest rate 
  • Where to get funding for a promissory note, beyond your typical banks and credit unions
