Defaulted Mortgages: US Treasury to Buy $700 Billion of Non-Performing Assets: More Opportunity to Buy Defaulted Mortgages, Says

The US Treasury's "bailout" of the financial markets is a landmark event in US financial markets that will effectively open the floodgates of defaulted mortgages into the market, states Many financial institutions have already indicated they will NOT participate in a Treasury-led bailout, but are expected to come under increasing pressure to sell their defaulted mortgages.

The reason why is that we're going to see an increasing amount of trading - or flipping - as more and more players jump into this lucrative note buying market

The opportunity for individual investors to participate in the secondary mortgage market and invest directly in defaulted mortgages has never been greater than it is now, states California-based

"I think we're going to see a spike in sales volumes over the next year as both Treasury as well as banks and thrifts mark their notes to market," says Dean Engle, founder of a distressed debt investment firm out of San Francisco.

Engle predicts that a government bailout won't diminish the volume of defaulted mortgages available for purchase to third party investors. "The reason why is that we're going to see an increasing amount of trading - or flipping - as more and more players jump into this lucrative note buying market," says Engle.

Real estate investors who have been chasing Short Sales should read the writing on the wall. Treasury will have a mandate to modify loans, so expect Short Sale volumes to remain flat or to taper off. More importantly, Short Sales turn out to involve significantly more effort and less likelihood in succeeding than buying defaulted mortgages.

Note sales, also known as buying and selling defaulted mortgages, however, will multiply. Interested investors should take advantage of the market, and of whatever training they can get, to invest in these profitable pieces of paper.

Engle is one of several investors offering training to new investors looking to learn the ins and outs of the business. His training company, Note Buying, offers a 16-hour training program that guides someone all the way through the Note Buying Process in an easy-to-follow, 8-week plan.

"We launched our A-Z Profiting from Defaulted Mortgages Business-in-a-Box Course a few months ago because we were being swamped with requests from short sale investors and foreclosure auction buyers who were looking to find out about these Notes," says Falk Willis, managing partner of

"To be honest with you, Short Sales are dead," affirmed Willis.

He may have a point.

Earlier this year, a study by the State Foreclosure Prevention Working Group revealed that Short Sales accounted for only 1.68% of all loss mitigation workouts among more than 5 million loans analyzed by the Group.

Buying non-performing bank notes aka defaulted mortgages is a growing business. In today's real estate market, it represents a significant acquisition opportunity. The US Treasury's recent announcement that it will acquire $700 Billion in non-performing bank assets is expected to open the floodgates as banks rush to participate in the bailout.
