from Initial Capital Contribution
Assuravest, LLC purchases non-performing residential real estate notes in bulk at a steep discount.
While working with the borrower, we use a multitude of profitable and creative strategies that bring the mortgage to re-performing status or to be paid off. Purchasing the non-performing notes at such a steep discount gives us tremendous flexibility, as does our proprietary workout solution that is not available in the traditional mortgage industry.
Our objective is to keep families in their homes with an affordable solution for long-term success while producing attractive returns for our investors.
This is how our portfolio breaks out with our multitude of solutions:
Sale of Asset Category Explanations:
Sale of Re-Performing Notes (42%) – The borrower has resumed making regular monthly payments and has paid off a portion of the arrears. These are the most valuable to the portfolio as they become seasoned over time and can be sold.
Drawer Notes (21%) – These notes have very little value due to multiple events, such as a BK or foreclosure from the 1st. History has shown that 21% of the portfolio falls into this category. We call them “drawer notes” because we stick them in a drawer for a possible payoff at a future date. They can also be sold as bad debt. We assign a zero value to them in our model.
Discounted Settlement (24%) – A profitable payoff agreement has been reached. The settlement is substantially less than the total owed, but more than the purchase price and expenses of owning the note.
Real Estate Owned (REO) (9%) – The fund has foreclosed and now owns the property. The 1st mortgage is still in place, yet the fund is not liable for the 1st and it remains as a lien against the property.
Homeruns (4%) – The borrower has paid off the complete amount owed or a large portion thereof.
Relationships + Deal Flow + Diversification = Protection
Deal flow and relationships are our big advantages. We piggyback with five different hedge funds to acquire large purchases from major lenders and banks. This allows us access to essentially unlimited deal flow and the ability to purchase these notes in bulk at very steep discounts.
Through that deal flow, we gain another advantage: protecting our investors through diversification. We purchase notes in volume from all over the country. We know all the notes we purchase will not be winners — even with our extensive due diligence — but with volume comes diversification, which adds another layer of protection to our portfolio.
