There are few lenders willing to finance note purchases due to the complicated nature of distressed debt situations as well as the fact that such financing is not secured by a direct first mortgage. There are even fewer funding sources that have significant experience in this realm.

We have deep experience in dealing with a variety of distressed debt transactions dating back to the late 1980s and Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC) fills the void for note purchase transactions. We can provide flexible and timely financing to small and medium sized investors acquiring distressed debt secured by commercial real estate. Once the foreclosure occurs, our note purchase loans automatically convert to a value-add / mini-perm loan to provide the necessary time to stabilize the property.

Our note purchase loans in amounts from $1 mllion to $15 million per asset (larger loans considered on a case-by-case basis). Some note purchase loans are kept on our balance sheet and serviced in-house an other aren’t.
