You may not think so but there is alot of money to be made in the real estate market. I know many say the market is terrible, but that depends on the nature of your business. You can make a lot of money in real estate despite the majority opinion. After all it is not the majority that is making a mine blowing income in this market. The truth is you can make money in real estate without even owning any property at all.
You can make money in real estate by buying or selling mortgage notes. A mortgage note is a document that is a contract where a borrower/buyer promises to pay the full amount back within a certain time frame. The seller holds onto the note and acts as the banker until the note is payed off (by collecting a regular monthly payment).
