Partials-Safety Plus Yield
by Tom Henderson

With the economic conditions in today's market, many of my students are starting to put their education into practice and invest in buying a "partial" of a note because they are realizing buying a partial might be the safest investment that can be made.

For the Note Buyer, purchasing a partial serves three purposes:

1. Note Buyers will enjoy above average yields, or even OBSCENE YIELDS. For example, let's take a $100,000 note @ 6%, with $599.95 monthly payments for 30 years.

If the Note Buyer wanted a 12% yield, he/she would pay $26,952.82 for the right to receive the next 60 payments. Is this a good investment for the use of your money for 60 months? I think so.

2. Note Buyers will limit their risk or exposure when buying a partial. In the above example, let's go to extremes and assume the property is worth only $100,000. With $26,952.82 invested in the note, in the event of default, the Note Buyer should have little difficulty in recouping all money owed him/her. Again going to extremes, is it not a safe bet that after foreclosure, the house can be sold for $26,962.82 plus the cost of foreclosure? Can you think of a safer investment

3. Note Buyers can buy partials with small amounts of money. No matter what amount you consider "small", buying partials can be utilized. Again, in the above example, the Note Buyer will enjoy a 12% yield with only approximately $27,000 invested. Not bad.

A combination of all three of these advantages can also be applied to buying partials. In THE NOTE PROFESSOR NOTEBOOK, there are several partial techniques where you can enjoy yields from 35% to having no money in the note purchase, which makes your yield OBSCENE. You will be amazed at the simplicity.

There are also advantages to the note seller.

1. The note seller will not have to take a deep discount because of low interest rate, low credit of the payors, or questionable property value. In the above example, if this note were to be sold to give the Note Buyer a 9% yield, the note would be discounted to $74,513.26. This is a hefty discount. By selling five years of payments, the discount is only $4,059.27. ( Be aware than many note buyers will go to lengths to hide the discount of a partial, and it can be substantial. Knowing the different "tricks" can save you a lot of money.)

2. The note seller will receive a lump sum of cash NOW, while having the note revert back to the note seller with a high remaining balance. Again, using the above example, the note seller would receive $26,952.82 immediately. (If the note seller needs more money, he/she can merely sell more payments) At the end of 60 months, the note would have a whopping balance of $93,054. The note seller will then have the option of selling another portion of his/her note if more cash is needed. (I know one investor that uses this technique on a regular basis) This gives the note seller the best of both worlds.

The question always arises of what happens in the case of default and early payoffs.
There are several ways to deal with these events, but they are too lengthy and requires a lot number crunching and preparing amortization schedules. A newsletter is not the proper forum to discuss defaults and early payoffs. Just be aware that like all contracts, there are contracts that are completely in the Note Buyer's favor. Knowledge of the different contracts can save you a bundle. I will be going into detail on how to address these and other issues in my workshop on Saturday, January 24th. I will provide sample contracts, as well as other Do's and Don'ts of Buying and Selling Notes.

Remember, buying or selling a "partial" of your note can solve many problems in today's economic environment. For the Note Buyer, it provides a relatively safe investment with high yields. For the Note Seller, partials will provide the lump sum of cash the Note Seller needs without the huge discount of selling the entire note. Because the note reverts to the Note Seller with a high remaining balance, more and more investors are utilizing this technique as an exit strategy.

Definition: Supply

The total amount of goods or services offered by potential sellers for sale at a particular time and at a given price.

Just as in the definition of "demand", (See last month's issue of THE NOTE PROFESSOR NEWSLETTER) the term "supply" has a correlation with price.

Remember, price is nothing more than exchanging one good or service for another. The point being that something must be produced to exchange. Relative to today's events, apply this definition to the "supply" of money. Politicians have the false belief if the "supply" of money is increased, then demand will also increase. They err on three fronts.

First they try to equate the printing of currency as the equivalent of producing a good or service. Printing a dollar bill does not produce a good or service. It merely devalues the dollar. This is the true definition of inflation. Trying to solve the economic chaos, which was caused by government, by printing currency and pretending it is production is merely setting the stage for inflation to go into fast forward at some point in the future.

Second, politicians believe if money is taken from the productive ventures and redistributed to non productive ventures, by some miraculous event, this is going to create jobs and solve all our economic woes. To use a real estate analogy, it would like taking all the income from your profitable rentals, and transferring the income to a large non profitable commercial venture.

Thirdly, the Federal Reserve and politicians do not have an understanding the function of prices in an economic system. Prices are a language that tells us what to produce, how much to produce, what to buy, when to spend, when to save etc. All of these variables are incorporated into a price system. Artificially setting the price of a commodity, and money is a commodity, the price system is distorted, which results in shortages of some sort.

Applying this concept to the supply of money, the Federal Reserve has arbitrarily set the "price" of money to banks approximating 0. They are going under the false premise that if they lower the price of money, and increase the supply of currency, demand will increase, and everyone will immediately start buying cars and houses.

The only problem is the "price" and "supply" of money is being set by politicians and bureaucrats, not the potential sellers. As a result, we have a situation that is not supposed to exist: low interest rates and tight money. Add to this the fact that 3 month Treasuries were paying a negative interest, and it is plain the effects of the distortion of a bureaucrat arbitrarily setting the price and supply of money has on the market. Something has to give somewhere. What will happen? We shall see.

(As a side "note", pardon the pun, these conditions are making purchasing notes, especially partials, a prime investment because of safety and high yields)
