COVID-19 UPDATE: Many prospective agents have asked us about the affect the coronavirus is having on our business so we would like to address that. Fortunately for our agents, this is one of the best times ever to be in this business. Our business has doubled since early March 2020, this is because so many people are selling their notes to get much needed cash. Now is a great time to start a note referral business.
Owner Financing is a Multi-Billion Dollar Untapped Market and it occurs in about 10% of all real estate transactions in the U.S., and it’s growing in popularity every day. Our company has been in business since 1997 and is one of the largest buyers of Owner Financed Real Estate Notes in the country. We have created a program whereby we work together (You and Charter Financial) so that we both make money in this great market. Before we go further, it’s important that you understand exactly how owner financing works, please watch the short animated video below for an easy to understand explanation of our business.
Hopefully you now have a good understanding of how owner financing works. It’s pretty simple really, instead of a home buyer going to a bank for a loan or paying cash for a home, the home seller acts just like the bank and finances the home for the buyer. There are many reasons why a home seller would finance the buyer, one is that it makes it easier for them to sell their home when the buyer doesn’t have to qualify for a traditional bank loan and two, sometimes the home seller would like the monthly income that comes from holding the note. Either way, there always comes a time when the note holder decides they would prefer to have a lump sum of cash now instead of waiting years to collect all of their money, this is where you come in.
We are going to teach you how to find notes and then you will bring them to us to purchase, we will cash out the note holder and pay you a great referral fee each time. We make money on each deal because we buy the note at what is known as a discount; this means that we do not pay the full value of the note, this is common practice in our industry. For example, if someone has a note with a balance of $90,000 left on it, we might pay $80,000 for the note, we make our money over time as the note pays off. You make your money upfront each time we close a deal for you, the home seller gets their lump sum of money and nothing changes for the home buyer except they now pay us each month. Everyone wins!
Our opportunity is really unique because YOU determine your fee on each and every transaction. For example, let’s say that you bring us a note and we tell you that we will pay $100,000 for it. You are then free to determine your own fee on that deal by subtracting the amount you want to make from the amount we offered. Let’s say you decide on this particular deal that you want to make a fee of 5% (the average is 3% – 6% but you are free to charge more or less on each deal). So in this case you would deduct your fee of $5,000 (5% of $100,000 = $5,000) from the $100,000 that we offered and you would then offer the client $95,000 ($100,000 – $5,000 = $95,000).
Our Offer to You: $100,000 Your Offer to the Client: $95,000 You Make: $5,000
When the deal closes we will pay your client $95,000 for their note and pay you your fee of $5,000 for a total payout on our end of $100,000. You get to determine how much you want to make each and every time. You might be asking yourself, could I have taken a fee of $20,000 on the above example. The answer is yes but then your offer to the client would have only been $80,000 and they might not have accepted. You will find that our offers are market driven and very competitive, and if you take a reasonable fee on each transaction then you will be able to close more transactions. If you are not sure how much to charge, just ask us and we will be happy to provide you with guidance each and every time.
Why we need more Referral Agents
There are literally millions of people in this country who are currently receiving payments from an owner financed mortgage note. Our company is a major buyer of these notes and it is our company mission to purchase as many of these notes as possible. We are well funded and have the ability to purchase an unlimited amount of notes. As each day passes, there are literally millions of dollars of new notes being created and this offers you and our company a great opportunity. Since the inception of our company, we have relied on a network of referral agents from around the country who work as independent agents and who bring us these types of deals. We have found that this formula works best for both our agents and our company and the great thing about this is that there is very little competition in the note business.
We offer an excellent home study program that will teach you our business, we call it “Building Wealth Together”, because we work together, You and Charter Financial to find as many notes as possible to purchase and we both make money each time. Our program will teach you the most up to date and proven methods of locating notes. One of the best things about working this business is that you really do not have to sell people anything; you will find that note holders will be coming to you for your help in getting them the money they are looking for.
Once you sign up with us you will receive everything you need for success, there is nothing else to purchase and no one will call you trying to upsell you on anything else. We would prefer you spend your money on marketing your business and enjoying your new found freedom.
Steps to Success
There are four easy steps you take to make money working our program.
Locate Note Sellers
Refer the Deal to Us
Deposit Your Money
It is really that easy when you work with Charter Financial because we have streamlined our program so that your main job is to Find Note Holders for us and get them to accept your offers, after that we take over and do all necessary paperwork and due diligence in order to close the transaction. Here is a breakdown of each step.
Locating Note Holders
Your entire focus will be to FIND NOTES for us purchase so therefore we provide you with all of the marketing methods that you may use to find notes and you simply choose which method(s) fit your schedule and your budget and then use those method(s) to locate as many notes as possible. For example, finding notes on the internet is one method that we teach and a great place to start. You can either place free ads on as many websites as possible, research courthouses for notes (we teach this method as well), place pay per click ads on Google (we teach this method too), or do some “Reverse Marketing”. Reverse Marketing is where you find homes that were recently for sale and being sold with owner financing (homes from 6 months to 2+ years ago) and using our methods, you contact the sellers and see if they would now like to now sell their note. This method is very low cost and an easy way to locate notes. Watch the video below for more information on this great marketing method.
The great thing about this business is that when you do your marketing people will actually respond and ask You to help Them get the money they need (no real selling is involved). When people respond to your marketing efforts all you do is ask them the questions on the QuoteSheet that comes in your package. These are really simple straight forward questions that the note holder will have the answers to. After obtaining the information you may either email it to us, submit the information through our online submission forms or you may fax the information to us.
As soon as we receive the information from you we will work up an offer for you, usually within 24 hours. As in all cases, we will make an offer to you and then you are free to subtract your fee from our offer and then make the new offer to the client. Let’s again use the following example.
Our Offer to You: $100,000 Your Offer to the Client: $95,000 You Make: $5,000
The average fee that our agents charge ranges from 3% – 6%, on the above example the fee was 5%. Our agents have the freedom to decide how much they want to make on each and every transaction, even up to 10% – 20%+ in some cases. We know of no other business where this is the case and is another great reason to work this business. After calculating your fee you then make an offer to the client and when they accept you proceed to step 3. Something of importance to note here is that when you send us the quote sheet we do not ask for nor want to know who the note holder is; we are only provided that information after your offer is accepted.
Refer the Deal to Us
When your offer is accepted then you provide us with the note holders name, telephone number, accepted offer amount and best time to call them. We will then contact your client and introduce ourselves and will email or fax them a purchase agreement and request certain documents from them. At this point you can either stay involved in the transaction by helping us obtain all of those documents, ordering the appraisals, doing title work, setting up the closings, etc. or you may simply hand the deal over to us and our professional processing staff will do the rest of the work for you, either way your fee stays the same. You might wonder how you are protected on each deal and the answer is simple. First of all, our agents are our lifeblood and we would never circumvent them, secondly we have all agents sign our Referral Agreement that states that we will pay you the difference between what we offer and what you offer the client on each transaction. As stated above, we will never know who your client is until your offer is accepted.
Deposit Your Money
It takes us on average around 2-3 weeks to complete all of our due diligence on each file and then we fund the transaction. Since we are a national company we always arrange for the note seller to close at a title company or attorney’s office of their choosing, one that is in their area. When our due diligence has been completed and we are ready to fund, we will send the closing agent the required paperwork and we will wire the funds to them. The note seller will go to the closing, sign the paperwork and receive their funds. We will pay you the same day either via a bank wire transfer or company check. It’s that simple and easy! All you have to do is follow those four steps and you are on your way to making great money and having financial independence.
