Educating the Public on Responsible Investment

Investments fall into two categories, financial or paper assets and real assets or tangible assets. Securities, which are financial assets such as bank deposits, money market accounts, CDs, mutual funds, and ETFs. These are all easy to convert into cash unlike real assets that include raw land, rentals, or other physical forms of real estate. True diversification is having both financial and real assets.

What Does It Mean to Buy a Tax Lien/Deed

We have heard the stories of the high-interest rates of crazy amounts like 25% and sometimes more. This depends on several factors, and it’s not an easy thing to achieve. Research is necessary so that an investor doesn’t end up with a piece of sidewalk or a property that is landlocked. Savvy investors know that there will be a handful of properties being auctioned with three times the number of investors. As a result, they have the upper hand over novice investors and usually win the bids on the best properties.

Turnkey Real Estate Investing

This is a tool that many novice investors prefer, where they purchase rental property through a property management company. These businesses acquire properties below market value in low-income, distressed areas then sell and manage them to investors.

Trust Deeds

This is the vehicle that allows investors to act as lenders to builders. It could be residential, commercial, or other forms of real estate. Depending on several factors, returns can range anywhere between 8%-20%.

Investors usually get paid monthly until the principal is paid in full at the end of the agreement, which averages around 9 months and can range anywhere from 3 months to 2 years. They are sometimes used to help season the investment before a commercial bank would give a loan on it at a much lower interest.
