The next step in the non-performing note (NPN) process is to evaluate before buying:

The eValuation 360°© Process of NPNs is the process prior to paying for the Note. It begins working with a reliable source of NPNs: servicer, small bank, and/or NPN wholesaler. Decide your buying criteria UPB (unpaid balance). As an example, if the UPB is $100,000, what is your buy rate 10%, 20%, 50% discount? What type of loan should you consider? A conventional mortgage, CFD (contract for deed) VA, FHA, or HECM (Reverse Mortgage). The interest rate is also consideration of buying; it is part of the six steps in getting the Note re-performing. The last and most important consideration is your objective once the note is purchased. Do you get the note re-performing, foreclose, or deed-in-lieu? This established objective will structure the above options.
