Figuring out the best place to put your money can be a challenge. You want your money to work for you but you don’t want anything too volatile. These days, the average interest rate for banks clocks in at under 1%. With the rate of inflation, you’ll lose money using this route. The stock market can be a good bet but without constant vigilance and a solid plan, you can end up losing everything.
What if I told you there was a way to invest in real estate without actually investing in real estate? It’s called Trust Deed Investment. It’s been around for a long time but doesn’t get a whole lot of press. With this type of Investing, you can enjoy the healthy returns of real estate without having to get involved with finding, buying, fixing or selling real estate.
Here’s how it works in a nutshell. A buyer gets a loan to buy a property but doesn’t use a traditional bank but instead uses an asset-based loan. The borrower agrees to pay back the loan and the lender holds the deed to the property that’s securing the loan. If the borrower fails to live up to the terms of the loan, the lender can look into that property to recover the money.
Now, you can be the lender and work directly with the borrower to set up terms. However, most investing is done through a “middle man” who does the legwork of the lending. As the investor, you would just look at the opportunity this middle man is offering, make your investment and collect your payments. The middle man may take a small fee, but that is typically paid by the borrower. By dividing things this way, you reduce your risk, the lender has funds to lend and the borrower has funds to use in their real estate endeavor.
