Preview Trust Deed Opportunities

Preview the wide selection of Trust Deeds available in our marketplace. Select opportunities based on your investment interests, property type, location, loan amount, interest rate or other criteria to ensure the investment is suitable for you.

Select from newly originated loans (Promissory Note and Trust Deed) funded directly from escrow or buy a "seasoned loan" that is already closed with a payment history.

Pledge Interests

Pledge an investment amount, either for the whole loan amount or a factional interest. When you pledge we will provide secure access to the loan file so you conduct your own due diligence, assessing the risk and suitability. You can increase, decrease or release your pledge at any time prior to funding.

Fractional Interests

Fractional interests are available in units that are 1/10th of the loan amount or a minimum of $20,000. Each Trust Deed investment is limited to a maximum of 10 investors.

Funding

Once a loan is fully funded and ready to close, the investment status will change to funding now. At that time no changes to pledges will be allowed. All investors will be notified and lender documents will be provided for signing along with wire instructions for wiring funds into escrow.

Closing

Lenders that pledge on a Trust Deed will be notified via email that the loan has moved into the funding stage.

During the funding stage, Lenders will receive 3 documents including:
1. Servicing Agreeement,
2. Lender Purchase Disclosure Statement,
3. Wire Instructions.

Lenders should sign and send back #1 and #2 above and then follow the instructions on the email regarding wiring the funds to the Escrow for the transaction.

Your Capital is now invested, earning monthly returns

Monthly principal and interest payments on the loans you have invested in are automatically deposited to your bank account.

All loan servicing is managed by our loan servicer, the leading private money servicer in America, with over $5 Billion of loans in servicing and a 30 year operating history.

Reinvest! Keep your Money Working for You!

When the borrower is ready to pay off their loan, either at maturity or earlier, a payoff notice will be provided to you. A final interest payment will be made along with the remaining principal balance. Your capital is then ready to reinvest.
