Today on Investing in Real Estate, Natali and I are detailing our personal experience with loan servicing companies. We’ll discuss the benefits and drawbacks, cost, how the process works, and more! Join us on episode 91!

More About This Show
On episode 37, we discussed how we set up a private money loan. Both parties agreed to the terms of the note, and we set up monthly payments. Although we trust our borrower, there are certain roles that go into private money loans that we were not comfortable performing.

For example, if you’ve arranged a private money agreement with a borrower, what would you do if they didn’t make their payment on time? Would you feel comfortable approaching them? Would you feel guilty about tacking on late payment fees? We just didn’t want to deal with those complexities. We didn’t want the responsibility of managing the loan.

So we sought out a loan servicing company to handle these duties. It turns out these services are incredibly valuable. Not only is the cost low, (ours is $15, per month), but it also provides a convenient online portal for both the lender and the borrower.

On today’s show, we’re getting into the nitty gritty of private note servicing! We’ll give the specific details of the company we work with, and how to find a servicing company that works for you. We'll also discuss the importance of an online servicing portal, and why it's important to think ahead when you construct your deals.
