My friend Donna Bauer encourages all landlords to have notes as part of their investment portfolio. She actually prefers buying notes over buying rental property. The reason for this is that she never actually owns the property. She owns the note. And for many investors who do not want to deal with or master the landlording challenges, buying notes offers you cash flow without the traditional landlording headaches. Since you don't own the property, you don't have to deal with tenants, trash, toilets, or termites. You also don't have to deal with repairs, rehabs, contractors, or even liability claims. You don't even have to worry about carrying costs such as taxes, insurance, utility bills, or HOA fees. In other words, you'll have no negative cash flows, unexpected expenses, or headaches when you're dealing with the note instead of the real property. I guess you can see why Donna loves notes. She enjoys all the security of a real estate investment without the hassles!

One of the most common questions she gets asked when she talks about the security of notes is, "What happens when the borrower doesn't pay?" She responds by saying: "You might come to an agreement with the borrower to accept the deed to the property in lieu of foreclosing and jeopardizing their credit. Otherwise, you'll simply go ahead and foreclose, where one of two things will happen: either you'll be paid off at the foreclosure sale, or you'll wind up owning the property. At that point, you will have to deal with the property, but, you can often sell it for extra profit, keep it for residual rental income, or even move into it if you want. Donna will share several ideas and clear strategies on how you can buy and  profit from buying notes with very minimum risk at the upcoming Landlord National Convention. She will show every landlord how they can easily add notes (and more cash flow) to their investment portfolio.
