Fine print is pretty important when it comes to Mortgage Notes.

A lot of would-be investors shy away from getting into Mortgage Note Investing because they’re worried that they won’t know how to read the contracts. But it’s not as a hard as it seems.

The biggest key is that you must commit to ALWAYS reading it.

I walk through a few scenarios to help you understand how to read a Purchase Sale Agreement in the Fast-Start Guide I’ve been telling you about.

This really removes the guesswork involved with getting into this business. It allows you to read, evaluate, and then bid with confidence. I even share what to do when things don’t go your way.

As your portfolio grows, you’ll see that they’re not all winners. Balance is essential, so when things don’t go as planned, there are things you can do to re-balance, and get back to growing.
