Guest Blog: Due Diligence in Note Investing

Perhaps you've heard of "notes" or "note investing" as an example of an investment for your self-directed IRA. In this video, Nathan Turner will show you how he determines which notes to invest in from those that are available.  



Nathan Turner is known in the note world as "the Canadian Note Guy." With a degree in Business Management, Nathan had owned his own businesses and been a franchisee before he discovered that real estate is in his blood. He got a taste for real estate investing in Canada starting in 2006 but shifted to US real estate two years later. He started in the states by creating loans and eventually evolved into buying non-performing notes with the intention of taking back the house in order to seller finance. Having had the experience of working in key partnerships, Nathan then branched out on his own. He started to build a portfolio in the spring of 2015 and over the last few years has transacted over 100 deals. Nathan is well known in the note community and has spoken at various conferences.
