Become a Lien Lord with Scott Carson, Episode 71

November 7, 2018

 

“Everybody’s in the paper game, most are just on the wrong side of the payments,” states Scott Carson.  He's been in the mortgage, finance, and banking industry since 2001 and actively buying notes since 2005. Nicknamed, “The Note Guy,” Scott has closed on over half a billion of assets and teaches others how to become lien lords instead of landlords. On this episode he explains why he focuses on buying non-performing notes, where to buy, and key differences with commercial notes.
