About Us

American Equity Funding, Inc. (AEF) has been in business as a mortgage note buying company for over 30 years. It has been involved in purchasing and selling over 10,000 mortgage notes and thousands of REO properties. We are proud to say that our experienced and professional mortgage buyers have an impeccable track record and have maintained an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau since 2006.

AEF was founded and, over the years, has established our knowledge in a wide array of niche markets in the real estate arena. With the fluctuating real estate market, we have flexed with demand and are proud of our expertise in the following areas:

  • Purchase and Sale of Owner Financed Mortgages
  • Land Contracts
  • Deeds of Trust
  • Contracts for Deeds
  • Bonds for Title
  • Structured Settlements
  • Mortgage Notes
  • REO Properties
  • Cell Tower Leases

When an owner acts as the lender for property sale, he takes on a risk similar to a financial institution. There are times when these risks make a profit and are a good investment. Situations may arise that would cause an owner to need his cash now if the purchaser cannot get replacement financing. That is when the owner would look to companies like American Equity Funding to purchase their mortgage note.
