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.
