Trust Deeds: The Fuel Your Retirement Needs and Deserves

The question isn’t at what age you want to retire, it’s at how much income you want to have when you decide to. If you’re simply relying on stocks, bonds, and mutual funds for your investment strategy, then you are missing what could be a pivotal vehicle for the growth of your retirement nest egg. Did you know that you can invest in real estate with a retirement account? With Trust Deeds at Ignite Funding, you can diversify your portfolio from the conventional market AND compound double-digit returns in a qualified account. Trust Deeds have longer hold periods, lower investment minimums, and offer capital preservation, making it an ideal investment to deploy for a long-term retirement strategy.

Valuation Methodologies: Evaluating an Asset Our Way

When determining what Trust Deed investment to invest in, the single most important aspect is the collateral that is backing the loan. The only security an investor has in the event of a default is the real estate itself. Real estate collateral operates in a similar fashion to that of an auto loan. If the auto finance company lends to the consumer and the consumer defaults on the loan, the finance company takes the collateral back. The only true recourse an investor has is the collateral, this is why Ignite Funding is hypersensitive to the current market valuation and future market valuation of real estate.

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.

Trust Deeds vs. Mortgages: What’s the Difference?

When borrowers take out a loan for a property, they have to sign a promissory note--a document pledging to repay the loan. Depending on where the transaction takes place, this document could be either a mortgage note or a deed of trust. The main difference between the two is in who holds the title to the property while the borrower is paying off the loan.

So What Is A Tax Deed?

Every piece of real estate in the United States is subject to property taxes that you will be expected to pay each year. If you fail to pay these taxes your property will become tax delinquent, which is a road down the slippery slope of tax foreclosure. Tax foreclosure is the seizing or repossession of the property by the county or municipality where the property is located.
