Performing & Non-Performing Promissory Notes
Promissory notes have been around for centuries, yet most investors have never actually been exposed to the opportunity of investing in notes. These are actually a pretty powerful way for you to invest, offering the opportunity to create cash flow and sometimes even capital gains.
Whether purchased or originated, performing notes offer:
- Consistent cash flow.
- Security in the underlying asset
- Can be leveraged
- No tenants to manage
A typical promissory note secured by real estate with a value of $140,000 with the following terms.
- 100,000 Loan amount
- 8% interest rate
- 10 year term.
Here is how you are protected:
- The property is insured.
- With $40,000 of protective equity, meaning the property can decline in value by $40,000 (28.5%) and you have not lost a penny of value in the investment (try that with stocks)
- If the worst case happens and the borrower defaults, you have remedies to take the property back and sell it or finance another buyer.
- Over time the principle balance is paid down further reducing risk.

Non Performing notes, once worked out and performing have a multitude of exit strategies making them attractive for investors looking for maximum returns and flexibility.
