Mortgage notes are used to record the terms of a bank note issued to purchase real estate. These legal contracts document the amount of funds borrowed, interest rate, property location, and contact information for parties responsible for repaying the loan.
Mortgage notes can be sold to cash flow notes buyers or private real estate investors. Many reasons exist for selling real estate notes. The most common include obtaining a lump sum of cash to finance college tuition, pay off credit cards, medical expenses or unsecured debts.

Broker Price Opinion refers to the process used to obtain property values. Mortgage lenders and bank loss mitigation departments utilize BPO reports in lieu of traditional property appraisals to obtain estimated property values of real estate which is entering into foreclosure or when borrowers wish to obtain a loan modification.
Broker Price Opinion is not the same as a traditional property appraisal. As the name suggests, the appraised value is an opinion based on a variety of predetermined factors. These can include the area where the property is located, square footage of the home, lot size, and the condition of other homes in the area; including the percentage of foreclosure or bank owned properties.
