Real estate investing is more than simply buying, fixing and flipping properties. So-called note investing or serving as the bank for properties is another way that investors can expand their real estate portfolios.

Real estate investor Dave Van Horn, a blogger, will lead a discussion on “Note Investing Strategies for the Everyday Real Estate Investor” during the Diversified Real Estate Investor Group’s monthly meeting on Oct. 26. The discussion is an introduction of sorts to a book by the same title that he is writing for 

A DIG member since 2003, Van Horn, for the last decade, has served as president and CEO of PPR Note Co., a holding company that manages several funds that buy, sell and hold residential mortgages nationwide.

His talk will feature real-life anecdotes on his accomplishments, as well as how he became a millionaire. The discussion will serve as an introduction to note investing and his book of the same title, which is still a work in progress. Van Horn has more than 30 years of residential and commercial real estate experience as a realtor, investor and fundraiser. He successfully raised more than $100 million for both notes and commercial real estate.

In his talk, Van Horn will share various strategies of how investors can use notes to:

  • Build wealth
  • Pay for college
  • Buy/sell a house
  • Leverage equity
  • Pay off a mortgage in one-third of the time without changing income

Van Horn owns 18 properties.

“Everyone’s in the note business, but they don’t realize it,” said Van Horn, adding that notes are applicable when you finance a car, buy a home, pay for college and more.

In addition to his investments, Van Horn, a national speaker and investment blogger for, said his biggest passion is teaching others how to build and preserve wealth.
