I am here to answer the question that I keep getting asked by a lot of people.
“How do we value notes that we’re buying from banks?”
One of the things that I’ve always done is I am a spreadsheet nerd; I love my numbers!!
And as long as we can do the numbers, I tell our team “do the numbers, the numbers tell you what to do”. So it always comes down to the numbers.
As a real estate investor rule number one, never, ever, ever fall in love with a property, because when you do that, then you start ignoring the numbers. And that’s a problem because you’re an investor first.
So what we do inside of analyzing, we actually have 150 point checklist that we go through that we have created around what works for us and our investing model. I would go down from all the way, the beginning is like which states do we invest in?
There’s lots of criteria around why we had chose these particular states. That automatically eliminates a whole bunch of notes that we wouldn’t bother to even look at.
Then from there, we start looking at the value, the unpaid balance (UPB).
Then we start looking at just the numbers around how long it hasn’t been paid, the interest rate, everything like that.
So when we create those formulas, ultimately it whittles us down and gets us really, really clear which assets will and won’t work for us. And then the next part is to calculate what we need to buy it for so that it actually makes sense for us financially for us and for our investors. And so that’s what we do.
We continue to work backwards inside of what the amount we need to make an ROI, return on investment. From there, that’s where we place our bids. And that’s what we buy our notes at.
