Amerinote Xchange: What We Buy

We have been purchasing notes, mortgages and real estate contracts for over a decade and we pride ourselves on a unique client experience at the best price possible.

Mortgage Notes (Residential and Commercial)

AX will consider any 1st position mortgage loans (residential or commercial) with at least 5% hard equity in the collateral and a borrower credit score as low as 555 credit score on residential loans and a 600 credit score on commercial loans. As a leading real estate note buyer, we purchase residential and commercial mortgage notes in all 50 states.

If the equity is below 5%, we will still explore the asset’s characteristics and make our decision on a case by case basis as well. We do have a minimum property-value amount of $50,000 on residential and commercial assets for sale. There is no minimum or maximum loan amount requirement whatsoever. We will also consider sub-performing, re-performing and non-performing residential mortgage notes and commercial mortgage notes on a case-by-case basis only – no guarantees of acceptance.
