Even where this isn’t a legal mandate, investors need to know their re- sponsibilities for qualifying borrowers, maintaining documents, and the terms which can be offered or which may trigger issues. The services of an RMLO com- pany can provide clarity on this, as well as organization, help with the labor of dealing with prospects and managing the paperwork, as well as empowering investors with the understanding of what makes truly valuable notes in the secondary market space. BEST STRATEGY FOR REAL ESTATE INVESTORS Offering owner financing packs a lot of benefit for inves- tors. First of all, it can help speed up sales. Real estate ads pro- moting seller financing can get a lot of attention. More investors, renters, and regular buyers are seeking them out. This not only helps to move property fast, but can also help boost resale prices. These buyers are typically more payment sensitive than price sen- sitive. This can yield a superior ROI. The creation of a new asset in the seller-financed mortgage note also provides the ability to enjoy steady streams of high-yield passive income, along with the flexibility to cash in and reclaim lump sum payments by reselling the note or portions of the pay- ments. Of course, one of the best and most important benefits of this real estate strategy is helping others. Offering seller financing is a great service that helps indi- viduals and families to enjoy the advantages of homeownership, while supporting local neighbor- hoods. 1. STATEMENT OF COMPLI- ANCE 2.
