If you are looking to “Create” a Note for purposes of refinancing your existing debt, you’ll find that there are few takers for mortgage paper created under these circumstances.
The quickest and SUREST way to get your profit out and to also be able to retire the existing hard money lender is to SELL the property to a “retail” owner user buyer and to consider marketing the property through the use of owner financing as both a marketing and financing tool so that this home will sell quickly.
Now this type of seller financed “paper” becomes VERY marketable and can often be sold CONCURRENTLY with the sale of the property from you to the new owner occupant retail buyer.
From the proceeds to be generated from the sale of this “paper”- you will retire any existing liens, debts, etc. and realize your profit from the property so that you can move on to the next deal.
Reputable Note investment firms (like Sunvest) can assist you in the proper things to look for when considering the sale and financing of any prospective buyer (such as required down payment, buyers credit profile, credit scores, employment, stability, etc.)
To your success,
