Prefer Cash Now?
Circumstances change and many sellers would prefer cash today rather than small payments that trickle in each month. Here are just a few reasons people have sold their note payments for cash:
Expensive Medical Care
Unexpected Financial Changes
Peace of Mind – no more worrying if the buyer is going to make late payments or having to foreclose
Accounting headaches, IRS regulations, paperwork hassles and the list goes on…
The value of a note is affected by the down payment, interest rate, payment amount, and term as well as the buyer’s credit rating and payment history. The type, condition, and value of the property also impact the value of your note.
The time value of money, which makes payments due now more valuable than payments due in 20 to 30 years, also plays a role in the evaluation process. Generally, due to inflation, money in your pocket today is worth more now than later. All of these elements will be taken into consideration in determining the current value of your note.
A note appraisal reflects the current market value of your payments similar to what a real estate appraisal provides for real property. It shows what your future payments are worth in cash dollars today and is sometimes referred to as a “note analysis” or “quote”.
We recommend you have your note evaluated once a year as pricing may change based on market conditions.
