What You Should Know About Real Estate-Backed Lending

With stubborn inflation and relatively high interest rates, some investors are turning their attention to private lending opportunities like deeds of trust. In essence, trust deeds serve as a security interest in real property, similar to a mortgage.
However, unlike mortgages, which involve two parties, deeds of trust involve three parties: the borrower, the lender, and the trustee. This third-party trustee holds legal title to the property until the loan is repaid or until foreclosure occurs. 

In this replay, you will learn: 

  • The trust deed basics for a foundational understanding to build on
  • Potential benefits and risks unique to trust deeds
  • Why due diligence is so important for investors 
  • How current market forces affect trust deed investors and investments
