Make Passive Income: Trust Deed Investment Tips. When you invest in trust deeds you essentially become the bank. By charging interest on the loan, you are making money the same way banks make their money. Trust deed loans are collateralized by real estate and secured by a deed of trust. The rates and terms are flexible and, when you work with an experienced broker, you can find a great investment that will provide you with a consistent stream of passive income. Before you start trust deed investing, there are a few things you should know:
The more equity a property has, the lower the risk will be. Since trust deed investments are collateralized by real estate, it is important to not go over about 60% LTV.
You will feel more comfortable investing in properties that are in your area. Understanding and knowing your community will help with your investment. You will feel that you have less control on your investment if the property is far away.
Know your options
Some investors choose to personally source individual loans and lend money directly to real estate investors while others choose to purchase loans backed by real estate from brokers or invest in a fund that invests in trust deeds. Many individual investors choose to use funds and brokers because it gives them access to professional real estate investors that are investing on their behalf based on the specific investment criteria the individual investor has set.
