Did you decide to create a few goals or “resolutions” to follow for the New Year? Did those resolutions also include your financial well-being and investment goals for 2020? It’s easy to just jump on the personal health bandwagon. Eat less carbs, go to the gym more and lose 10 pounds. Maybe this year you should try to do something different. We have put together a few questions and ideas to help spur you on to your journey to achieve those investment goals, whether it’s with Trust Deed investments with Ignite Funding or any other investment opportunities you may have in 2020.Are you investing in real estate?
Investing in real estate is a great way to diversify your investment portfolio from traditional assets such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Ignite Funding creates a point of entry into this market by offering First Trust Deed investments that can earn you a passive, fixed income of 10% to 12% interest annually, and your investment is collateralized by real property. Regulated by the Nevada Mortgage Lending Division, Ignite Funding is able to adhere to more attainable investor suitability requirements than other companies that only offer crowdfunded real estate investments to accredited investors. An accredited investor must be earning more than $200,000 annually or have a net worth of $1 million. An Ignite Funding investor must earn more than $70,000 annually or have a net worth of more than $250,000 excluding their primary residence. You can also invest a minimum of $10,000 per Trust Deed investment.
Are you utilizing the different ways you can invest?
Are you already investing in real estate with Ignite Funding? That’s great! But do you still have money in different places sitting on the sidelines not earning you any interest income? At Ignite Funding, you can invest with cash from your bank account or a Trust, funds from your business, and funds from a Self-Directed IRA account. All you need to do is open a specific account to invest those funds through, and every account you open is FREE and can easily be completed online! Do you work with a financial advisor to allocate your cash or SDIRA funds into different investments? So, do we! Let your financial advisor know about our Investment Advisor program, and we can help them get your account set-up to put your money to work on Trust Deed investments.
Are you keeping your real estate portfolio diversified?
When you invest in Trust Deeds with Ignite Funding, you have the opportunity to diversify your funds across different borrowers, different regions and different product type. If you keep seeing the same borrower projects pop-up, pay attention to what state it is in. Some of our borrowers have projects spread across different states, making it so their success is not reliant on the health of one state’s or city’s market. This allows you to still diversify even when investing with the same borrower. You can also diversify across a different range of real estate types, from industrial to healthcare projects, to luxury homes to 200+ fourplex unit community projects.
Are you keeping your funds reinvested?
Every day your money sits uninvested is a day of interest not earned. Signing up for text alerts, subscribing to our YouTube channel, and making sure you are receiving our emails can help ensure that you don’t miss an opportunity to reinvest in a new real estate project. You can complete your investment documents electronically on your phone, your computer, or even your tablet. If you are not in a convenient location (i.e. out of the country) to find a notary public to sign your Special Power of Attorney, there are now notary public services that you can find online. In other words, there are very few excuses for being unable to keep your money reinvested and working for you.

*Are you investing with a Self-Directed IRA? If you are, make sure you keep yourself informed of new contributions limits. This will allow you to invest more and potentially earn more tax deferred or tax-free income depending on the type of IRA account you are investing with. Did you forget to make your contribution for 2019? It’s not too late! You can still make your 2019 contribution before the tax filing deadline on April 15th. If you are feeling ambitious and it is within your means, you could even make both your 2019 and 2020 contributions at the same time. If you are not investing with a self-directed IRA, you can follow the link here as a start to finding the right self-directed IRA custodian for you.
