American Funding Group questionsAmerican Funding Group questions?  Listen to a recent comment….”We found your note buyers of American Funding Group to be very, very pleasant. All our questions about American Funding Group were  expertly handled  My attorney and I were impressed with their helpful attitude. Our transaction was completed professionally and quickly. We were very, very pleased and would give you our highest recommendation.”

What cash flows will you buy?
As a leading mortgage note buyer and mortgage investor, American Funding Group buys all types of seller financing… real estate notes (land contracts, contracts for deed, deeds of trusts).  We also buy payments from structured settlements and  business notes. and, we pay top dollar for your lottery and annuity payments.

Whom will you work with?
American Funding  Group works directly with note holders to develop note purchase plans specially designed to meet their needs. We work with advisers to the note seller, specifically: realtors, attorneys, CPAs, financial planners, bankers, accountants, business brokers and mortgage brokers. We also work closely  with note brokers. We strive to help all note holders, note brokers and advisers in any way that we can.

Do you actually design purchase plans specially tailored to solve the note holder’s problem?
Yes, we do. For example, if the seller would like to be totally free of owner financing, (mortgage, trust deed or business note) or sell all deferred payments from a structured settlement, annuity, lottery or other periodic payment contract, we will buy all these payments now. But, the note seller may not have to sell all of his payments to achieve his financial objective. Here, we will tailor a purchase plan to fit the note holder’s situation. In most cases, we can purchase a specific number of payments or a part of each payment to generate the needed money  to solve the seller’s problem.  Here it is very important to ask questions about American Funding Group and its ability to “think outside the box”

This might be one of your American Funding Group questions.. how much do you pay?

FOR MORTGAGE NOTES: the value of a mortgage note is determined by number of factors, including the credit worthiness of the payer; the type and location of property; condition of improvements; structure of the mortgage note, including payment amount and repayment period; priority position; market interest rates and length of time the mortgage has been in place. There is no “standard” amount that is paid because there are no “standard” mortgages, properties, or payers. Every mortgage, every property and every payer is different.

FOR STRUCTURED SETTLEMENTS: As a buyer of structured settlements, we strive to meet the financial need of the seller rather than just trying to buy all the payments. If we’re buying only a portion of the payment stream, we can solve immediate financial needs and leave sufficient income for the future. The amount we’ll pay depends on a variety of factors, including the underlying strength of the annuity issuer, the frequency and terms of payments, the remaining “period certain” and the terms of the settlement agreement.

FOR BUSINESS NOTES: the value of a business note is established by a number of factors, including the credit worthiness of the payer; the experience of the payer in the business he is buying; amount of money the payer has at risk; the length of time that the business note has been in place; the structure of the  business note, including payment amount and repayment period and interest rate. There is no “standard” amount that is paid because there are no “standard” business notes or payers. Every business note and every payer is different.

Another one of your American Funding Group questions might be… What expenses does the note holder have to pay?
None, we generally absorb all costs.

How long will it take to receive the funds?
Normally, 2-5 weeks after we receive all required documents.

Another one of your American Funding questions might be… as an adviser to a note holder, how will I know what is going on with the transaction?
We will keep you up-to-date on the status of each transaction with periodic status reports. You’ll be able to monitor the progress of the transaction without having to invest your time and resources in this administrative challenge.

How can I establish a relationship with your company?
E-mail or fill out the online worksheets… the  Mortgage Worksheet (for mortgage notes), the Business Note Worksheet (for business notes), or the Settlement Worksheet (to sell structured settlements or to sell your annuity).

If the seller converts a mortgage to cash, how will it effect the person(s) paying him/her?
It will not affect the payor. All terms and conditions set forth in the original note and mortgage remain in force. The only change will be to whom and to where future payments are sent.
