Introducing Martin Saenz

  1. What problem do you solve?
    • We create passive income for investors that are looking to retire at some point and need passive income to live.
  1. What three problems do you solve?
    1. What is note investing?
    2. What are the risks behind note investing?
    3. What are the benefits of note investing?

Show Notes:

  • Most importantly, what is somebody investing in?
  • Note investing is about mortgages that are originated at the bank but about 4% of loans go into default.
    • Banks bundle the mortgages that aren’t paying together and sell them off into secondary market.
  • Martin’s mission is to help families stay in their homes by paying the mortgage that they can afford and still making a profit for his company.
  • The risk with note investing is who are the operators of the fund?
    • Are they committed and are they experienced?
  • There’s a risk of delinquency with note investing.
    • You have to make sure people continue to pay.
  • Martin keeps his mortgages safe and buys owner-occupied mortgages.
  • Martin gets his passion in helping homeowners and in building passive income so that people don’t have to work till they die.
  • The CEO helps share the vision for the business and the people who execute it.
  • Break out how much of your income is passive and how much is active.
    • How can you invest additional money in passive ways?

Martin Saenz’s Recharge Round

  1. What habit do you think has led to success in your life? Martin looks at his financials every day.
  2. If you had one do-over, what would it be? He got scared of an opportunity and didn’t take it. He thought too small, and then someone else executed his vision and succeeded.
