Selling your mortgage note can be a great way to convert to cash when needed.  There are many reasons why you might need to sell your mortgage note, such as estate division, retirement planning, emergency funds required, or even just because you are tired of managing it.  

Before you can consider selling your note, you need first to make sure it is saleable.  Most mortgage notes are eligible to sell, but if you are unsure you can easily have it checked out to make sure before you begin the process.  

You may also choose to sell a partial note in the event you need to convert to cash but do wish to retain some of that revenue stream.  Here are a few benefits to selling your mortgage notes.


If you are beginning to consider retirement, selling your mortgage note can be a fast way to ensure you have the reserve funds needed for retirement.  Any mortgage notes you own should be a critical part of your retirement planning.  

Many potential retirees opt to sell the notes rather than continue receiving smaller payments.  It is much more difficult to budget and plan when you are receiving monthly payments.  This is most likely to get whittled away by small daily expenses.  When you receive the lump, you can better invest it so you can have it work for you through your retirement years.  

Raise Capital

If you find that you are in need of a large lump sum of cash quickly, selling your note may be the way to go for you.  Any situation could arise that would cause you to need to convert your note. If you are hesitant to sell your note, you can consider a partial sale.  For instance, if you find that you have a large amount of credit card debt with high-interest rates, partially selling your note to pay down the high-interest rate cards is a wise financial decision.  

This will also allow you to hang onto part of your note, so you still have some income streaming in each month.


Going hand in hand with retirement planning, diversifying your portfolio is a great way to ensure that you will have enough money to see you through your golden years.  When you sell your note, you have liquid cash which puts you in a powerful position.  

By having a large amount of money, you can make sound investment choices that could help you realize a much higher return on investment than collecting your monthly payments would.


Selling your note is a great way to help secure your financial future.  Many people just become tired of the management of the note and are looking for a way out.  Managing notes can also be a risky business should you have to foreclose on the note or any other serious default that may arise.  By selling, you can make investments that are more hands-off and enjoy hitting your financial goals.
