NEW TRUST DEED INVESTORS HAVE MANY QUESTIONS. HERE ARE ANSWERS TO SOME OF THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS.
A Trust Deed is a recorded document which places a lien against the subject property. The three parties to a trust deed are the trustor (Borrower), the beneficiary (Investor) and the trustee (usually a title company.)
Investing in Trust Deeds means you invest in short-term loans which use real estate as collateral. Trust deeds offer high ROI with low risk as the investment is secured by the value of the property.
The returns on Trust Deed investments typically range from 8%-12% based on the parameters of the loan. Factors like term, property type, Borrower experience, etc. will determine the rate of return on the investment.
As mentioned, Trust Deeds are secured based on the current value of the collateral property instead of the projected future value. This more conservative approach to investing helps minimize risks to investors.
If a Borrower defaults, the Investor (Lender) can foreclose on the property. We set low Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratios so the Investor can sell the property quickly, if necessary, to recover their investment and maybe even realize a profit.
In the unlikely event a property loses value, the Borrower is still required to make payments and pay off the amount they initially borrowed. This is the reason we set low LTVs to help protect our Investors from losing money.
NV state law requires that you meet a minimum of either a) a net worth of $250,000 – not including the equity in the house you live in, or b) an income of at least $70,000 or more for each of the past two years.
