of carrying back a second of $20,000 @ 10%, you wrapped your
second lien around the $70,000 for the same 180 months. The
buyers now are paying you 10% on $90,000 instead of $20,000.
This will increase your yield to a whopping 19.09%. Do you
like yields like that? I know I do.
let's go a little further and play some games with the terms
of your wrap. It has been said that notes are a depreciating
asset. To large extent this is true
unless you are armed
with knowledge of the time value of money. Let's take this
example and tweak it. Suppose instead of having your wrap
note exactly coincide with the time of the underlying, you
extend the terms to 360 months instead of 180 months. What
will be the affect of your equity in the wrap as time goes
boring you with all the calculations, I will just hit the
high points. (If you want to check my work, then get out your
calculator. It is merely a problem of finding loan balances.)
we start out, you have $20,000 equity in your wrap. $90K minus
the $70K underlying. How much equity do you have at the end
of 2 years, 5 years, and 15 years?
Wrap Note Balance: $88,947
Underlying Note: -$64,328
Wrap Note Balance: $86,917
Underlying Note: -$54,189
Wrap Note Balance: $73,498
Underlying Note: -$00,000
How can this be? My equity in debt is growing instead of depreciating!!!!
you starting to catch on? By tweaking your wrap, you can increase
your equity and your security. Why? Because the underlying
note is being paid off quicker and at a smaller interest rate
than your wrap. The result is as long as there is an underlying
loan, your equity increases. Great technique for those who
like security, or believe the loan is going to be paid off
in an average of 5 to 7 years. What does this do to your net
worth? That's right, your net worth increases.
always, what I want you to see, and grasp, is the use of the
concept of the time value of money to increase your wealth.
Knowing how to manipulate the variables of a note, can greatly
increase your wealth. You have just seen one example.

Because of demand, Tom will be repeating his class on owner
financing, on Saturday June 24th and Sunday June 25th, on
HOW TO GET RICH WITH NOTES. This class is limited to 20. For
under $200, you will learn what a similar "boot camp"
in Austin teaches that costs thousands. You will also get
THE NOTE PROFESSOR NOTEBOOK as a learning tool. This will
be the last time this course will be offered this year, at
for details. Or call Joele at (972) 671-7346
