Trust Deed and REIT investments are seemingly similar at first glance.

There are some key differences that you should be aware of when deciding which investment vehicle is best for your portfolio and for your tolerance for risk.

No one is immune to defaults

Defaults are always a possibility for anyone lending or investing in a “crowdfunded” real estate development. How the default situation is handled can be detrimental to the return of your initial principle investment. As a loan servicer for Trust Deed real estate investments, Ignite Funding stands behind each and every loan that it originates, often wearing many different hats in order to protect and return investor capital when default situations arise. Ignite utilizes its real estate expertise to act on behalf of its investors as Default Coordinator, and an Asset Manager if a default is to be resolved through foreclosure. At Ignite Funding, we have a proven track record in default resolution that is backed by results to our investors, having worked through and grown from the downturn in 2008.
