    If you have enough cash to buy the real estate notes and hold them, you can live off the interest or monthly payments. However, most people who are investing in Real Estate do not have the cash available to do this to start off with.

  3. Buy the real estate notes with a partner
    If you don't have enough cash to buy real estate notes yourself, you can find someone else to put up the difference. You may have to split monthly income with your partner based on your agreement, but it may be a feasible way to get into the business inexpensively.

     

  4. Buy real estate notes and restructure them

Buy real estate notes and then make them better. (Increase the yield) For example, if you buy a real estate note, then go to the person making the payments and offer to lower the interest rate if they increase monthly payments. If they are currently paying $300 a month at 11%, offer to lower the rate to 8% if they can afford $400 a month or 3% if they can pay $500 a month. If the person paying the monthly payment is financially able, get them to go and refinance for a better rate. This will give you cash to go on to invest in a different property, expanding your investments quickly.
