As a buyer, AGORA Data provides an invaluable framework and set of tools to help you find the right deal that best matches your buying criteria. We strive to maintain an open marketplace where sellers and buyers can come together to begin transacting hassle free and in as intuitive as possible manner. Because we don't summarize portfolios and instead trap data at the loan level, and combined with our data standardization, AGORA is able to provide a robust search experience across all deals listed on our application.
To get started, sign in to app.agoradata.com. First, let's visit the 'Buy Loans' page from the left-hand menu. When first visiting the page, you'll see a full list of every public deal for sale within AGORA. You can freely sort this list on any of the default columns shown: seller and deal name, loan count, and loan principal balance.
To get the most out of finding the right deals listed on AGORA, use the filters to capture some of your higher-level buying criteria. At first, the information shown in the deal table (loan count and balance) is unfiltered and represents the entirety of each deal. As you apply filters, the loan counts and balances will change to reflect new totals after removing loans from each deal that do not match the filter criteria. For example, let's say you set a single filter for delinquency, selecting only current accounts.
Before applying this filter, Test Seller 3's Deal 1008 showed 347 loans at a principal balance of$3,427,430.24. After applying the filter, this same deal appears in the list below, however, it now shows totals of only 74 loans, or $679,253.74.
This means that of the original 347 loans, only 74 are less than or equal to 0 days past due. When you click on the link to the deal, you'll once again see the full offering, however, you are provided the ability to filter your selection once again before actually placing a bid. Finally, a deal will be removed entirely from this list if none of its loans meet the criteria you've set. By using filters, you're able to quickly input your general buying criteria and view only the deals that are relevant to you. You can then find a deal of the right size with the right range of number of loans, and take over from there!
